Cruel World


In this cruel world why is it so
Some people are called lords
Whereas some are considered so low
All are humans so why should some bow?

In this cruel world, why are
Some people are living in big mansions
And many on roads on tar
Why is there such a big bar?

In this cruel world, oh why
God, why you stay so low?
Here some on bed and some on roads lie
Please help us before all humanity dies.

    Hi Aditi.
    Just remember as long as you dwell on these thoughts, you will be surrounded by this tragic. If you dwell on beauty and harmony, when you believe in it really, you shall have it. You will see those things, but it will not come near to you. It is not easy, but can be done. Just remember rich or poor they all have their lesson in life what they have to work out. If you know this, you get more understanding why things happen to some. But even the richest person is not happy because somebody will come and say no to them and they get a heart attack over it, they cannot control.
    Anyway you can put your words so beautifully together.
    Love you. (Report) Reply

    Very good poem.
    I believe there is so much cruelty because of all the sin in the world. If there were no sin no one would go with out or have more then others. Jesus had no possessions and only spoke of love. If we all lived by His example the world would be transformed to the way God wants it. So many don't even believe in Him, let alone try to do what He has instructed us to do. All these people who live by their own desires, add up and cause so much grief. It's like these people believe in only the survival of the fittest. So many refuse to believe in Christ, and choose to live by their own rules. Even some so called christian s aren't really christian. We all have something to learn from your poem. Thank you so very much for sharing. May God bless you with comfort, provision, favor, and joy throughout this new year. :) (Report) Reply
