This is a song I wrote a while back,its called SMILE :D
its about the way some people view poverty. I have found that a lot of people see it as a romantic almost innocent way of life, as if hugging the poor children in Africa will make it all better.
Real poverty is horrific, its strips people of their dignity, it forces them to live undignified lives and pretending that our sympathy is enough will never fix the problem.
the world changes so quickly. who is to say that in 20 years you or I won’t be the ones in poverty - needing real help but only given a passing thought or being the topic of conversation amongst those who call themselves enlightened…
Kinda deep I know, but if you’re gona say something it may as well be worth sayin! YOLO etc ;)
