Denied and revenged

Whatever is denied will take its revenge!

A life denied is a life not lived!

I caused a mess, I see it all
I know I am wrong but I like to hide
I feel it now, I feel it raw
It’s time to reveal, my blatant mask
In politics I hide my lazy ways
Who wants responsibility, when there is someone to blame
I pay my taxes, I exercise my voting rights
for those to blame for a life I have denied

Universal law, an indiscriminate whip
In what I denied, I find my fate
The wealth I denied takes its revenge
My judging ways its trailing edge
I call on God to help me out
In prayer I dare my begging ways
In asking I lose my grateful accord
As even begging takes it revenge

But what to do in this contradictory dance
My despair apparent in this continuous woe
My mother sweet, my father prudent
They taught me all, to live it all
In saving for the future, they denied the present
Living month to month on promised retirement
When death knocked, retirement was non
Who knew the cheat that death can be

In living in the future, my parents had died to present
They were the walking dead, waiting for another life
The futility of this dance, can not be denied
Yet its dancing floor if full of willing volunteers
We are scared of ourselves, we are scared to live
This truth is ugly, it is hard to see
But what you do when you exchange your time for money?
I have got to live, is your constant reply
Life moves on, while you fix your butt on yet another cooperate chair
