We Live in a World


We live in a world
A world of neglect
A world of hate
A world of shame
Shame of the wrong doing
We live in a world
With no back ways
Only highways
We turn our backs
To the crime
By and by
They scream for help
They cry in the night
We turn away
They don't eat for days
We don't care
Until it's too late
We live in a world
A cold, cold world
A world full of lies
A world full of starvation
A world full of regret
Regret of ignoring
The invisible children
We live in a world
A world of hunger
Hunger for the
Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
