Where Is Love

Poem By Tammy Ashton

walk down the street

I see

the hungry
the homeless
the wounded
the lost
the lonely

My heart aches for humanity

I watch the news

I see

War
greed
suffering
indifference
hatred

I weep for humanity

where will

I see

compassion
kindness
tolerance
forgiveness
love

The greatest crime against humanity is neither loving nor hating other people but being indifferent towards them. Agape love is indeed the highest level of human development, the measure of civilized behaviour is compassion. A lovely piece you've got here. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Beautiful Girl

Beautiful girl why are you so cruel
Perfect white teeth covered by full glossed lips
lips that form the destructive insults
you fire at your victim like missiles

Again Daddy Again

I feel the wind rush against my back. A wave rolls through my stomach. I fly higher and higher then.... stop........suspended....... before I fall, laughing......fearless. I know you will always catch me. 'Again Daddy Again' I chirp through laughter.
