Where Are We Going


WHERE ARE WE GOING? (6/4/13)

IS THIS THE WAY LIFE IS TO BE?
CAUSE ALL I SEE IS HEARTACHE AND MISERY!
THERE IS SO MUCH LOVE LAYING ON THE GROUND
AND NO TRUE HEART TO BE FOUND.
LIES AND DECEIT EVERY WHERE AND NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO TRUE LOVE?
WHEN IT SHOWED IN THE STARS ABOVE.

THERE USED TO BE PHILOSPHERS, SOOTHSYAERS, AND FORTUNE TELLERS
THAT COULD FORESEE THE FUTURE OF MANKIND -AND NOW
THERE IS NO ONE THAT WE CAN FIND.
EVERYTHING HAS GONE TO HELL!

TORNADOES, HURRICANES, EARTHQUAKES AND MORE
AND THE SEAS UPON THE SHORES.
SO MANY DISASTERS KNOWN TO MAN
WAS NOT PART OF GODS PLAN!

HE IS TRYING TO TELL US TO STOP AND LOOK AROUND
FOR WE ARE DESTROYING EVERY THING ABOVE AND BELOW THE GROUND.
BUT MOST OF ALL WE ARE DESTROYING FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE
GIVEN TO US FROM HIS HEAVENS ABOVE.

WHY CAN’T WE UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT HE WANTS IS
FOR US TO HAVE LOVE FOR OUR FELLOW MAN AND
TO RESPECT ALL THAT HE HAS CREATED AND GIVEN TO US.
WE HAVE TO LOVE AND RESPECT OUR TWO MOTHERS, MOTHER NATURE
AND MOTHER EARTH, THEN REBUILD FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE
TO HAVE EVERYTHING THAT WE DREAM OF.

    Wow Louis this is really great. I truly enjoy your masterpieces. Where is the world going?
    The wrong way of course. We need to listen and take notice of what is happening
    all around us. Dark clouds means rain. Please read my poem titled Lord, I Hear
    Thunder. You are very gifted Louis! (Report) Reply
