"This World" is a poem I wrote one day while thinking
of all the problems we have in our daily lives around the
world. First touching on the loneliness one feels when
a love has ended and pondering over life, thinking about
the larger problems we have all around us and how are
we to fix them? We can start by showing some kindness
and love in this world we all share. Kindness and a smile
go a long way to cheer a person up and let them know
that we can all spread this love around this planet.
Perhaps one day, things will start getting better and more
world problems would be lessened with love and a simple
act of kindness, not hatred toward our fellow human beings.
Standing at the edge of a cliff, looking out to sea
Trying to make sense of all this world around me
Love can mess you up inside and break your wounded heart
I feel as though this world we share is only falling apart
So much hatred and anger in this world today
What happened to unconditional love, has it gone away
Our Earth is a wasteland of broken families and shattered dreams
Each day the tragic headlines just make me want to scream.
Death, destruction, war, greed, poverty, homeless people on the street
Hate crimes, suicide, rapes, murders, starving children begging at our feet.
What will it take to stop this self destruction we all face
Must we succumb to the inevitable annihilation of our human race
What can we do now to change this crumbling world that we've made
Love, respect, honesty, prayers, charity and helping one another each day
A smile, a hug, and sharing some love, isn't so difficult to do
What you choose to give out to the world, is that which comes back to you
