Rebel Against Corruption

by Jennifer RIP Lesthat Hayden   Feb 3, 2008

It is true, there are people, that don't really care
They go on with life and ignore the bad news
But just remember some are simply unaware
Some information still needs time to diffuse

There are some people that simply choose to act blind
They watch the world through candy coated glasses
Know that there are others that were just left behind
Much of what we learn is from our school's classes

We have been taught to live but not how to react
We hear something so wrong we do not believe
Some people are so lost they deny what is fact
Despite all the truth some things we can't perceive

So proud some are to play the part of the hero
In truth many actions proved erroneous
The falsity scores many, while truth scores a zero
Some things start nice and then end felonious

Let the free criminals pay all their rightly dues
Now it is our turn to make a wrong a right
Even those holding power, don't let them abuse
Never allow truth to take away your sight

Be a rebel and tell the world all that is wrong
Even if you're mean, persuade that you are right
Research to find the truth and you will become strong
Change their brainwashed minds so all may shed some light

    Hmm, this poem was written about a thought. It seems kinda vague. You were very descriptive in your writing about how you felt. But something feels like its missing. The ending was fabulous and I loved it. And the flow was good as well. But I have to give this a 4/5.

    Keep up the good work :)

    Wow.......... THe only thing i could say as a word of improvement would be to add a little bit more on the topic and and another stanza or two. But your analysis of the world and it's ignorance to wrong doings is incredibly acurate. I'll spread word of this around, Everything was well written.
