Charmed

Do you think that

you will live a long life,

make plans for your future

alongside your beautiful wife.

What about the people

who have gone

before they had the choice,

do you ever wonder

why nobody listened to their voice.

What makes you believe

that you have the right

to think you can pull

the curtains and sleep easily at night.

Do you believe that trouble will never

end up at your door

0r you will never experience

what it is to be poor.

I am sorry to break it to you,

but no one escapes unharmed

no matter how much they believe

that their life is charmed.
