Sonnet: My World Today

The world I live in is not good at all;
I rarely find a human being good;
There isn’t a righteous one whom I can call;
The majority lives in evil-hood.

There is no one whom I can depend on;
The place abounds in ‘snakes and jackals’ much;
They move so stealthily by dusk and dawn;
For time being, they have a ‘Midas-touch’!

But things will change for good I do believe;
The evil ones will reap their punishment;
The world and God, one cannot long deceive;
God will usher the day of His Judgment!

And must I lead a file of men with masks?
My precious time is meant for better tasks!

An enjoyable piece; nice job.
John - I do believe you make incredible sense. I feel for those of you in such dire straits, and here we sit at our pc's and write poetry. However, I feel that this site may just be an instrument of peace inthat it touches so many people all over the world, and for the most part, we are peace loving individuals. A chance to lift the collective consciousness to a higher level. Thought provoking write. Linda
