You Know Whats Sad


You know what's sad
When the system
Runs amuck

You know what's sad
When the governments
Says enough

You know what's sad
When the world
Ignores your prayers

You know what's sad
When a child
Loses their innocence
Through a hurtful
Thoughtless jerk

You know what's sad
When men
Can never be free
In there own wife's company

You know what's sad
When a mother
Loses her child

You know what's sad
When one you love
Can no longer breathe

You know what's sad
When a hungry child
Lives in poverty

You know what's sad
When no one care's
And they kill all your dreams

You know what's sad
When silence
Is your only friend

But despite all that
We all must live
With love, and respect
In harmony
Isn't that what's life suppose to be

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
