Toxic reality

Shivangi Agrawal

I don't know what went wrong or whatever is happening, for all I know is - something isn't right, something doesn't fit, negativing killing creativity, people losing their sanity,
Masses killing masses,
People butchered in hundreds,
Everyone is fighting a battle it seems,
some with tridents swords and axes,
Some with doubts conflicts and climaxes,
Life has become a paradox - boiling rage inside, sad reality outside,
The world is falling apart, and matters are worse at heart,
Don't know what to believe in, don't know what to think,
Just know everything might blow up even if I blink,
Sigh, think I need another drink.
