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?

    We're all too busy racking up points so we can pretend to be pirates and hunt a pointless treasure is my guess.

    A very good poem well worthy of being the poem of the day. The world needs more poets like you Zainab. (Report) Reply

    Congrats' on being voted 'poem of the day'. Your topic is quite interesting. I too wonder what would it be like if everyone had this perspective! Nice job! (Report) Reply

    Nice questioning quality. Needs a little grammatical help. It would be a stronger poem if it was a tad more hopeless and full of destructive emotion. Also the questions could be added to just a little bit to make it appear that there actually was an answer to them, whereas the way they appear now makes it sound like the author actually has no idea what the answer might be. If it sounded more like there was an answer to the questions that the authors poses, then the reader would pay more attention and search for meaning because they would want to personally find the answer for themselves.

    A very appreciative thought in the poem about peace and existence of the world itself. In fact even though so many atrocities and wars, corruption, misdeeds are going on making the world difficult for the peace loving still there is hope in the people who are expressing their objections in injustices and against open wars that destructs the humanity. The poet have made wonderful and relevant questions to the minds of the readers and it is a success of the poem that I felt and seems to be. I liked the poem and poet as well. (Report) Reply

    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 (Report) Reply

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

    '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! (Report) Reply

    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! (Report) Reply
