what kind of world?

What kind of world are we living in when we can’t be fucked lending a hand?
What kind of place is this when we ignore those around us?
What things go through your mind when you ignore a plea for help?
Do you think you’re better than everyone around you? Do you just not care?

What kind of place is this? Are you expecting someone else to say “Me!”?
What kind of world is this when we all miss opportunities?
What are you thinking, when you see someone more popular than you?
Do you want to bring them down? Are you really that childish?

What kind of world are we creating for ourselves? Is this really how you want it?
What kind of world is it, where every question is met with silence?
What kind of place do you come from to think that you can just ignore?
Do you mean to hurt? Or is it just that you’re un-educated?

What kind of world are we coming too when all I see are the selfish?
The rotten, the mean spirited, the wicked and the damned?
What kind of place are you condemning me to?
Do you really want to stay here? Is this the world you want to create?

Artist's Description

How many of you ignore the journal entries and the forum posts and the group messages that ask for help and advice? how many times have you glanced at one and thought, “someone else will do it.”? I’m guilty of it, and I know you all are, but I declare that it stops now! coz guess what? chances are, no one else will say anything, they wont know that you looked and said nothing. what if you know the answer and are that persons saving grace? what if you are the difference between life and death? what if knowing that, and you still walk away?
are we really that selfish? are we really that self centered?
