Poems and Poetry About Making The World A Better Place - I Have Seen The Father's Tears.
Upon hard times and deprivation,
The children of the world
Suffer times of desperation.
The kingdoms are all falling
The streets are filled with fighting
The cobblestones are stained.
The blood, like wine flows freely
From the pale and delicate flesh
Of the misled misguided children,
Who are caught up in the mesh.
I've seen the Father's tears
They are falling in the rain
Yet again, sons and daughters are enacting
Scenes stolen from brothers Abel and Cain
The faithful plead their case
To a world that refuses to hear
Consequences unveiled and revealed
Leave us scoffing at that which we should fear.
What is it thats required
Before we believe what we cannot see?
How many times will the beautiful souls
Have to live and die for you and me?
In a world that thirsts for love
While it breeds jealousy and hate
People so immersed in their greed
Destroying both destiny and fate.
Grasping covetous desires
Everyone hungering for more
Precious few hoarding their riches
Masses starving in the street,
Outside of their locked doors.
If your treasured bounty
Weren't more important than the truth,
Would you still cry out for war
When unity and peace
Would form a lasting truce?
Amid the call for justice
Hypocrisy like a river is running free.
Mere men playact at being God
Blind to how it all should be.
Still the faithful cry
To a world that just won't hear
As in the falling rain
I've seen the Father's tears.
