Rejection
Copyright George Papavgeris, April 2008

I've seen the light go out from lovers' eyes
As daily care would take its toll
I've seen the heroes climb the pedestal
Only to stumble and to fall
I wasted so much time
Looking for answers on the breeze
Now I know better,
I don't want any part of this.

I've seen the horror on a mother's face
Holding a bloated hungry child
It seemed another time, another place
And yet I felt myself defiled
I wasted so much time
Missing the wood for all the trees
If this is progress
I don't want any part of this.

And good intentions I have had a few
To make the world a better place
But though I shared the dream with others, too
We thought we could control the pace
But lost each other in the race

I've seen the face behind the razor wire
Accused for accident of birth
And those who put them there around a fire
Swapping their stories full of mirth
I wasted so much time
Turning the cheek and saying "please"
If this is justice
I don't want any part of this.

I've seen the rubble and the towers fall
I felt the anger and the pain
And I have heard the patriotic call
Wanting to do the same again
I wasted so much time
Trusting the ones who held the keys
If this is freedom
I don't want any part of this.

And good intentions I have had a few
To make the world a better place
But though I shared the dream with others, too
We thought we could control the pace
But lost each other in the race

I've seen the dark and dingy alleyways
Selling the needlefuls of hope
I rode with joy down countless motorways
That only faster make the slope
I wasted so much time
Believing ignorance was bliss
If this is the future
I don't want any part of this.

So for tomorrow let this be your guide
One thing to learn from this old fool
The things you need you'll find them all inside
No need to be some other's tool
I wasted so much time
Thinking to teach when I should learn
Now you know better
Your rights are only what you earn.
