What is this World?

What is this world? This Earth have we

Spinning around, chaotically

I often gaze through tear-dropped eyes

Those bright sparkling lights dotting our skies

Wondering if there’s order above

Justice, hope, worlds filled with love

Returning my gaze to all this around

The hatred, the malice, war with no sound

Listening to silence, watching as we

Destroy and degrade this “land of the free”

What is this world? What has become?

I ponder it often, my mind becomes numb

Around every corner, there’s fear and there’s pain

Children are orphaned, families slain

All in the name of profit and greed

Power they want, compassion they need

What is this world? Will it ever be changed?

The death and destruction, so cold and deranged

When will we realize this must not go on?

The hurt and the torture, from dusk until dawn

Innocents dying, assailants unknown

Miles away, just guiding a drone

Detached from life, it’s realities

No cause for concern, just more refugees

I long for the day we all rise above

We all coalesce, we all join in love

What is this world? We mustn’t let go

What is this world? I shall never know
