Just a little more…

I write this poem a little slower so it can have a little more emotion,
Maybe a little more feeling for a little more impact,
I use a little more devotion and ask for a little more attention,
Because the message I spread is a little more important and needs a little more of you to react,
So I’ll give just a little more.

We wake up in the morning a little busier so we feel a little more sleepy,
Work a little harder so we can die a little faster,
Meet our children a little less frequently because our boss is a little more creepy,
Connected a little better due to technology but communicated a little less due to our psychology,
Because we are afraid to give just a little more.

We breathe a little deeper so we can climb our mountains that got a little steeper,
Buy a little more alchohol to throw our troubles a little further down the bottle,
So we can worry a little more when we wake up because we drank a little more than we could take up,
Little girls wearing a little more make up so they can look a little more grown up,
So they can get to do just a little more.

So as we get a little older the world seems to get a little colder,
We wish we could be a little bolder so as to carry a little more world on our shoulders,
So we find ourselves a little more stressed because we think we are a little less blessed,
Young boys are a little more depressed and end up with old diseases like cardiac arrest,
Because they couldn’t get a little more.

Still we continue to search for a little more paper so we can get a little greater,
Maybe have a little more haters but live a little larger,
We do things a little more immoral and say things a little more unbecoming,
Lower our values just a little more and accept a little more indecency,
Just so we can get a little more.

Every day that we do a little more in every way so we can get a little more for what we say,
But maybe if we were a little less busy and made a little more time,
We would be able to live a little more life with a little less strife,
Maybe do things with a little more ease have a little less disease,
Have a little less contempt and be a little more content,
If only a little more.
