The World Today

Look at the world today and tell me what you see
Lies, pain, suffering
Horrid crimes, hate, sorrow, grief
Look and tell me if this is right
What we put others through for our own enjoyment
Is this right
Or are we just to scared to face the fact
Are we that dependant on our past
That we cant see what we do is wrong
Look at what the world is coming to
A place where none of us feel safe being ourselves
A place where the general, the norm take over and nothing is created
We are at war everyday
Not with a country
But with ourselves
The opposite of war isn’t peace
It’s creation
Look at what we’ve done

This is a beautiful poem that makes me want to read everything George Darley ever wrote
