I want to believe in a society
built on the foundations of truth
Where love and forgiveness are protecting walls
And faith and hope is the substance within
Where brotherly deeds welcome you inside.
But instead I find myself on a hollywood set
building facades of plastic and plaster
Hollow shells with emptiness inside
Chastisement is the currency
and denial of self – the key to enter
Where you are rewarded for playing a role
and for condemning your brothers.
I found myself in a society that I want to believe in
But that has never believed in me.
