Some People

Some people are working upon things that no one else would understand.
Confused by the way the simple things work.
Looking forward towards what was left behind.

Some people seem to know exactly what it takes to make the good things get out of hand.
Confusing right from wrong so the clean looks dirty.
Looking for opportunities to leave the future behind.

Paying bills is all that matters when you live from day to day.
Employment security is a thing of the past in today's modern world.
You see your co-workers all around you falling off along the way.
Knowing that you will receive less because the greedy want more and more.

Some people are trying very hard to expose for all the truth to see.
Confused by the ignorance of the well informed.
Looking forward to a time when we have opened every door.

Some people are trying to hide from all the truth so that no one will see.
Confusing the ideals of the well informed.
Looking forward to a time when they have locked every door.
