Why Is The World The Way It Is?

Poem By Kayla Surber

All things now are materialized
Who has tie to care who lives, who dies?
Over polluting the world is of little concern for the common man
The UV rays now give more than just a tan
The Ozone as we know it is depleting
Every waking second, even when we're sleeping
The conflict in Iraq is a focus in the news
We all react as if it is our cue
We try to make that place more habitual
Each week prices increase for buying fuel
It seems like money is the ruler of our life
I believe it causes too much strife
Religion is another major topic
Who cares if you believe in God or not?
Believe what you want and do not judge
Why must people hold such a grudge?
Gay or straight? Its a personal choice
Everyone should have their own and equal voice
If they say to fight for what you believe in
Then why is killing another person such a sin?
If we could all just live and let live...
And more of us could be assertive...
This world would be a much better place
But one question still remains in any case
Why is this world the way it is?

I Am

I am the guardian of your life
I am the foundation of excellence
I am the love flowing through your veins
I am the honesty prospering in your heart

So I'M The Girl

So im the girl.. that you never paid attention to..
Im the girl that always says Hi to you..
Im the one who cares about your problems and wants to help.
Im the one.. who has been hurt and left with welps.

Live, But Experience Death.

So, You need to smile.
You know who you are.
You know what you want in life.
You are perfect in your own way.

One More Opportunity

So many feelings in my one single being
Self-reflection only leads to self-fleeing
I can’t sort out my own thoughts
But in this day and time, it must be me to call all the shots


Broken Apart..So confused..
