Adults acting like children
And children acting like adults
Why such a role reversal
Everyone just looking for results

Life and morals become a dichotomy
Hypocrisy
Catastrophe
Melodrama
Traits and ideas you all share
I'm the only one left who cares

I cannot let slip this mask of deceit
I cannot falter or accept defeat
I cannot let them steal or cheat
I have realized I cannot compete

All these walls are faltering
Like my quivering hand
This house cannot stand
Leave your posts unmanned

For our ship is sinking fast
I am falling from our broken mast
Trying to catch hold of our broken sails
The breaking ship in pain wails

Enough of metaphors and veiled emotions
Ignoring problems is an older notion
A notion that is too foregone
Time to tackle these problems, head on
Poetry, what more do you need to know?

I love this! The rhythm and rhyming are perfect, they are, and I'm so impressed by your talent, Scratch25! I especially think that the last four lines are a perfecting ending to the theme you discuss in this piece - the urging that we should do something about these problems. :)
