A World So Divided

Updated on May 17, 2012

In a world so divided and so cold,

I tend to wonder how are we going to make it?

As we know that nobody can make it out here by themselves.

Its true that sometimes we have to stand alone but Jesus said that two are better than one.

How can we pick each other up, if we do not know how to stand?

How can we lend a hand, if we too scared to stand?

in a world full of turmoil, division truly stands!

We are divided by race, by color, by age, by occupation, by church and state,

We are separated because of so much hate.

My heart is hurting for the ones that long to be accepted,

that long to fit it, that long to have friends and family who will allow them in.

We are all brothers and sisters in Christ so family extends.

We should have spiritual families that are so strong that nothing could divide them.

Its time not only for America to stand but for THE WORLD to stand.

Jesus said that although we are in this world, we are not of this world.

We should be loving and kind, our light should shine and allow others to follow us.

We should be able to have our own mind, lets get of rid of the hate

and replace with love and respect.

To my brothers and sisters in Christ(even those who do not believe),

I love you all and will be praying for you when I drop down to my knees

even when Im praying in my sleep, I too dream that we will all realize that we have been set free.

      Thanks so much Olde Cashmere! For your wonderful comments! I agree with you that the media does spin everything and turn into fear, that is so true!

      This is absolutely beautiful and the message needs to be read by many people. I still hold optimism for the future of our world and hope our differences can be set aside. I'm tired of all of the division and how the media spins everything to inject fear and promote separatism. We are all one. Thank you MsLofton for a beautiful poem. Voted up, shared, and beautiful :)
