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 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.
