Love vs. World -poem

Why does everyone always write about love?

Why not discuss how the world goes 'round?
Today we see generation after generation struggle:
to find jobs, to keep families together, to protect and shelter
the youth too naieve to know the cruel ways of the streets.
The old are no longer wise, but disrespected. The teenagers
no longer have potential but only expectations guided by stereotypes
society labels them with without even asking. The parents
place their children in bubbles hoping to preven the spread of germs
and disease and growing up to be rebels. Children run with free
reign only as far as their child leashes let them roam. Neighborhoods
embrace the idea that only 2 beatings, 1 murder, and 3 pedophiles
were reported in the last month. The educated folk sit back and
discuss the pros and consequences of preventing ....who cares
they're never going to take action anyway. But they discuss as the
middle aged folks drink up their youth and responsibilities for one good
laugh a week usually on Saturdays. Friends let friends drink and drive
and smoke their brain cells out of hiding. Money is always lacking in the
lives of those working 3 jobs, raising 4 kids, and living in trailor parks only
because it harbors with the worthless diluted folks that don't reach for goals,
or have them, but that fail over and over without ever learning from the same
mistakes. People laugh at the idea of happiness and embrace grief and disappointment
because that is what they know best. The negative is inevitable and the positive
only a fairy tale. The media thrives on destruction and the outrageous
differences and trends celebrities present as normal and okay. Sex
is what's cool and desire is the drug of the innocent. Human suffering takes a
backseat to national pride and arrogance and the selfish triumph because the
compassionate sit back instead of standing up to be heard and prove that a few
good-willed individuals CAN make a difference.

Why does everyone always write about love?
Because it paints a pretty picture of emotions every person has of a perfect
possibility that may or may not happen, but DAMN
it feels good to dream. To hope. To drift off into never never land.
Love is timeless, infinite, powerful, motivational and angry and
set side by side to how the world turns today,
It's beautiful.
