We Are Lost and We Just Don’t Know It, a poem

Storm
We are lost and
We just don’t know it
We cry out in the dark of night
Yet hear no other sound
And we fail to see there’s light
In the moon and the stars
To guide us gently home.

We are lost and
We just don’t know it
For mighty men, we stand real tall
And notice not the souls of others
Stamped beneath our feet
But this is progress, we cry
And some obstacles must be overcome.

We are lost and
We just don’t know it
Our sins are veiled beneath fake smiles
And we buy and we sell
Our souls last glories
At bargain basement price
On our pedestals we shine, unaware.

We are lost and
We just don’t know it
You can hear it in the cries
Of unloved child – abused
He lives his life in fear
Just how many of them
Are near?
And we fail to hear their tears

You can hear it
In the sorrows of the old
They are thrown aside
And though their views
Should make them wise
Silent, in homes
They now live their lives
Surrounded by strangers,
They’ve lost their pride
And we fail to hear their tears

You can see it
In the soul of the earth
No respect for beauty or life
Torn open, drained and polluted
The earth’s existence
Is filled with strife
We cry for rain,
For storms reprieve
And we fail to see
What our hands achieve
And we fail to see or hear
By our own deeds, the end is near

We are lost and
We just don’t know it.
