Shaken Beliefs

Is there a specific age

when we realise

that what we believed is not true

that the reality

we were told is lies

and now we should take time to review.

The wars waged in our name

were nothing

but a strategic part

in some unknown game.

Newspapers and television

were all used

to keep us in line

by airing propaganda

that told us

everything would be fine.

Then when we get to the age

when we finally awaken

it is too late,

for our beliefs have been shaken.
