All the World Wants (Poetry by GalaxyRat)

Updated on May 30, 2017
GalaxyRat profile image

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

All the world wants is prefection; it wants no flaws.

All the world wants is freedom; it wants no laws.

All the world wants is rights; it wants a new constitution,

All the world wants is peace; it wants an easy resolution.

The world does not want your opinion,

It does not want your voice,

It will not listen,

All your protests are is noise.

It encourages your uniqueness,

It loves your quietness,

It adores the fact you won't speak up,

It tries to keep you at bay with a 'shut up'.

Ironic, isn't it: the world wants you to be you,

Hey, but what else is new.

All the world wants is you to follow its laws,

So, you won't know when it starts to fall.

      Haha! I suppose the animals would want that, but wouldn't us being gone not help these plump pets that need high-fat food?

      Thanks for commenting!

      Nice poem GalaxyRat. What the world wants is us humans to get off it so animals can live in piece!

      IKR! My dark poems get the most views. :)

      By the way, this link is to a poem I wrote which brings up my thoughts to people's reactions to my darker poetry, and that their words say something entirely different than what my views show...

      Incredible poem; very profound!

      I tend to write poems that are rather dark, too. Some people have been "kind" enough to tell me to not write about dark things; others have been very encouraging! But, when all is said and done, I will write what I feel most entertained to write about...LOL. I write; they do not have to read it :-)

      But interestingly, it's my dark poems that get the most views. Ironic... (Makes me laugh at how very strange people can be; it's all such a paradox, really).

      Yep, John. But, when they do listen, they won't like what we've gotta say. Thanks for reading.

      This is oh so true. Our leaders are so blind to what the general population want and need. They are only concerned wit making the rich and big corporation richer and more powerful. When we protest it is in vain. One day they will be forced to listen.
