This World by Gary R. Hess

This poem is about all the terrible things happening in the world today. When you turn on the news, what do you see? Do you see hope? Or do you see rapes, murders, violence, arguments, and other nonsense? Why does this happen? Why can't we do something better?

I hate the world we live in
Nothing seemed so true
The culture differences
The religious beliefs
The murders, rapes, and beatings

Nothing good came of this
Nor will it ever
The tyranny of this world is great
And hurtful to every mortal

My girl, my love
I feel so helpless
Knowing these evil things can keep us apart
Knowing these things might break your heart
