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

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
