Collecting Thoughts and Keeping Quiet

I’m fading away
Camouflaged into the background
Even as the world is fearing

Unnoticed on the sidelines
I’m always hearing
Collecting thoughts and keeping quiet
Never bother interfering

Dirty top officials
Pulling strings and squashing lives
Profit from their racketeering

Bullies on their stolen thrones
They take and take and put us down
Hide me from their hateful sneering

I cannot fix things
Not volunteering
I will bury head in sand
There’s no point in false veneering

What hope is there?
What grey clouds clearing?
What good in man?
What traits endearing?
What changes come?
What movement rearing?
What next, what now, what can I do?
Keep persevering.

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
