World taken with media

human value tossed.
The cross is forgotten.
Farmers without seed
world in so much need.
kids grow up scrolling through their feed;
potential leaders who never learn to lead
or be led
They lie in bed
more taken by the newest game
or finding fame.
Keeping so busy, they don’t hear
the shame that calls out: that tear
the heart sheds
ignoring than the person with nothing to eat.
the world lies at our feet
and we stare in to our screens oblivious
to the promise
we’ve given up on.
in return for lies: empty promises lacking any meat.
We would rather be oblivious
Keep our world neat, uncomplicated please
Even if that means ignoring the truth we so obviously see
So you and me
Stay oblivious. To the hurt outside of us.
