Why do we allow, the articles of today

To control how we feel, about ourselves in every way

It matters not to them, whether someone is beautiful and kind

They’ll still find a way, to make them feel awful inside.


How often do we read, about how someone has lost their way

Yet sensationalist headlines, rip them apart with dismay

How they have “let themselves go” or “gained another 20 pounds”

All this teaches us is, how to be glad of another’s demise.


It makes me so very angry, that we now live in a world

Where rather than celebrating our fellow humans, we prefer to trample them into the ground

Don’t get caught up in this madness, of constant judgement and shame

Instead stay away from this poison, find a more humane way.


If we show we are united as people, love one another with care

Rejoicing successes together, or helping others find their way

We’ll then evolve into the type of humans, we should all be wanting to be

Let’s step away from the habit, of picking apart all that we see.
