What Is Our World Coming To?

Rage restlessly wrestles,
inside my very being,
after bouncing around my inner walls,
to the surface it is fleeing,
it’s begun to seep through my pores,
leak out of my eyes,
I can no longer hide it,
I can no longer disguise,
my feelings of disdain,
towards the evil on this earth,
always able to rear it’s head,
when required to prove it’s worth,
the people who become possessed by it,
and carry out it’s quest,
with results that leave me horrified,
they weigh heavy on my chest,
have we not learnt from our history?
the massacres and wars,
because we the doomed continue to repeat it,
one of society’s fatal flaws,
innocent loss of life,
due to a fear to change,
or maybe a reluctance,
I find it all so strange,
people can’t go see movies,
attend their school or work,
without the possibility of some madman,
running riot and going berserk,
no love for our neighbours,
and to those who serve and protect,
we show no regard,
and show no respect,
we steal from our elderly,
we rape and we kill,
we assault and we persecute,
I could go on; I have time to fill,
but I don’t really need to,
you know in your heart,
of this pain and suffering,
that drives families apart,
and there is no amazing solution,
no brilliant stop gap,
no magic wand waving,
no android or iphone app,
I just go to sleep and dream,
that we might learn to love,
value and cherish each other,
not think our laws we are above,
I know; a far fetched dream,
which I hope to wake from one day,
with a newsreader telling me,
everything is all OK…

Artist's Description

I know there is good in this world…and I have been trying to keep positive, but I am so very sick of waking up in the morning and hearing the tragedies that swept the world during my slumber…
We are all people, we are all the same…we all come into the world in the same way and we will all eventually leave this earth the same way…so why can’t all our lives be valued the same way?…why can’t we love and respect one another and our right to life…to live
our right to have a destiny we can control…?
What is our world coming to…?
