Untitled- possibly "Me"

Where is your sense of duty?
Where’s your strength of empathy?
The world is weighted on your shoulders-
Why do you run from me?

The scars are fresh for all to see,
Yet smiles and joy run free.
Your selfishness, your arrogance,
Do not sit well with me.

Your blindness keeps you happy,
Your ignorance leaves you comfy,
You feel not the need to open your eyes
And see the suffering inflicted on me.

You regard my life with pity,
You view my culture cruelly,
Believing that never in this lifetime
Will you experience the same as me.

Despite facing this adversity,
Despite living through this poverty,
My life is pure, my spirit good.
Yes- you can learn from me.

I will not let you settle in naiveté,
I will shame you out of apathy.
I will force the world to change-
A change that starts with me.



What do you think guys? There are a couple of bits that I'm not happy with and want to change, but I thought i'd let you guys have a read and hopefully you can come up with some good suggestions :)
