{{{ How I See Our World }}}

Poem By Linda I. Weischedel

Viewing our world as one nation,
I see it is suffering from broken communication,
for we're always plagued by anticipation.

It is no longer what I can do for you,
it is what you'll always do for me,
now you're telling me this is how it honestly should be,
whatever happened to the best things
in life are free?

Men and Woman fighting in a war,
families are losing their hearts more and more,
we're told they are fighting for a 'Cause'
it's not a cause....it's a cost,
for everyday a lot of innocent lives are being lost.

Forever judging each other by color, race or creed,
saying or doing whatever need be,
for most are fueled and controlled by greed.

If we continue on with such distasteful deceitful lies,
there is only going to be one guaranteed surprise,
we will all have played a hand
in bringing our own world to it's demise!

Very true, Our World has many concerns to be addressed. You have done a great job here, many feel as you do. We must keep a positive attitude for change.......10
You do well voicing the concerns of the common person. We keep asking and never get satisfying answers. This part stands out for me: 'it's not a cause....it's a cost'. It's seems like nothing is free. We always have to pay in some way even in learning.
Good stuff and strong sentiment. Thanks for showing me I'm not the only one that thinks along the same lines. Are there enough to make a difference? I have similar thoughts in my poem entitled New Faith. Keep writing!
A strong and powerful message, Linda. I love the way you presented this. You did this from your heart.
You spoke the truth, come straight from the heart. Wonderful poem Kindest Regards Ricky
