I cry for help

I cry for help
when there’s knowledge, yet no wisdom
when there are dreams, yet no hope
I cry for help
we’ve hearts but no kindness
souls but no empathy
I cry for help
when there’s light yet no guidance
when there are words, but no truth
no honesty, no meaning
I cry for help
so much said but nothing told, nothing explained
when the delusional freedom is all but chained
I cry for help
I do, I do cry for help

I cry for help
when we are called a society, yet totally disintegrated
when lovers are together, yet separated
I cry for help
when the help given comes with a price tag
when the favors lent are used to invoke guilt
I cry for help
when we say prayers to a God we remember only in dire need
when we’ve turned a deaf ear to what’s going around
I cry for help
when the differences become reason for prejudism
when the flowers have lost their fragrance
I cry for help
when liers find new victims to prey upon
when deceivers attack the innocence
so much said but nothing told, nothing explained
when the illusional freedom is all but chained
I cry for help
I do, I do cry for help
