The World We Live In

Why don’t we all take a hard look at the world we live in.
Why is it that we have all the hate not love,
Why is there all ways room for war, not peace?
Why is it that no one ever thinks about the consequences of their actions?
Is this what it has come to?

Why don’t we all take time to think about each other?
We are surrounded by so much beauty but no one takes the time to appreciate it.
We are all so busy with our lives, too busy to even notice
as life passes by,
Days become weeks, weeks become months and months become years.
yet there is no difference in the world.

Why is our world filled with corruption, destruction, poverty and many other endless things.
It makes me wonder, have we all given up?
Haven’t we learnt a lesson yet?

The world that we live in, is it too late to change it?
Or are we so far gone, that change has just become a mirage.
let us all have some hope and pray for peace
and may god bless our soul,
Because the world we live in isn’t going to last much longer.

    nice thoughts, Zainab...it's a nice poem also...Good, bad, love, hate, beauty, ugliness...these are all 2 sides of a coin and as Nature would have it, will always be there...but somehow positives always win over negatives...this also is a law of nature and ensures continuity of life.

    This last line really speaks and brings it home: Because the world we live in isn't going to last much longer.
    Speaks truth. Faces us with a great reality and conclusion to relfect deeply on

    Great! There are many questions to ask about events around us but the answers are difficult ones

    true...simple and to the point..........thought provoking......if only all could take a moments to ponder on these facts........good

    'It makes me wonder, have we all given up? '
    ...
    'let us all have some hope and pray for peace'

    Certainly, we should not give up hope and work for peace. Nice thought!

    The causes to write this poem is very good, but the unnecessary prediction in the last line has wasted the good mood of the poem! Thank you for sharing!

  • Wahab Abdul (9/30/2012 1:40:00 AM)
