Sonnet: The World I See Today
The few good people I’d known appear changed;
The evil-doers seem to have increased;
The few sane people I’d known look deranged;
Most healthy ones are totally diseased!
The world I saw in childhood was so good;
The world I see today is pretty bad;
Polluted are the air, water and food;
To leave this treacherous world, I would be glad!
This earth was good when God made it at first;
Man’s selfishness has wrought ruin on it;
Man’s sinfulness has turned him one accursed;
So many souls are heading for the ‘Pit’.
But God had planned the redemption of man,
Through Jesus Christ, within our earthly span!
