Waiting On The World To Be

Poem By Kathryn Marie Thurman

Back in the good old days,
it was all about the 'happily ever after'.
Now there are no sunny rays,
but only judgmental laughter.

Things we do, and like, and say,
make us who we are each day.
We choose and take chances,
either we turn out broke or with high money balances.

We have to respect the different paths people take,
because if we dont then were just fake.
This world just needs to sit and take a break,
worry about world hunger and not about race.

The different cultures need to embrace,
and the different classes need to start to partake.
There is so much we can learn from one another,
but all we do is dislike each other.

From being black, brown or white or any color inbetween,
it shouldn't matter, it should all be sub-seen.
I don't know how people could treat others with anger and racist thoughts,
can't they see it makes people distraught?

Love is all we need,
and that is what im waiting on the world to be.

Dealing With The Pain

The pain that people feel,
is the rough past coming out.
You just have to embrace and deal,
so in peace may lay your doubts.

Childhoods Crushed

A little girl from beverly hills,
cried from her hotel in Rome.
For even though she had all the bills,
she had parents who were never home.

Only In America 2008

The day finally came,
where our hope was untorn.
Shouting out Obamas famous name,
so we don't have to cope anymore.

Live The Life You Love..Love The Life You Live

Through all the injustice making life not fair,
the world is choking, gasping for air.

Even though people differ in color, beliefs, and tongues,

With Those Dog Tags

Away at war,
and in a foreign land.
Your heart being torn,
between two great demands.
