This World....So Broken

Updated on August 11, 2017


So broken


So Confused


So angry


So abused


So helpless


So used


Can we break this vicious cycle?


This world


This world is in pain


This world we’ve destroyed in vain


So thoughtless


So naïve


So uncaring


So deceived


So violent


So unachieved


Can we break this vicious cycle?


This world,


This world is in pain


This world we’ve destroyed in vain


Moving forward in peace, seems harder to do


Moving two steps behind, seems easier for me and you


Yet we are hurting the lives of those for the next generations


Is all they will know is how to buy bombs and ammunition?

      Thank you for this powerful poem. One day the world will be remade afresh. The New Jerusalem will come down from Heaven. Can I get an amen?!

      Hi Fullerman,

      Thank you for the shout-out. We need to stop breaking our planet now! If everyone does their part then we can, together, make a difference. Let's all recycle and rebuild. We can do it!

      Every road have it's own bumps and bruises,but God for some have already cleared the way. Not to move the bumps...but have already prepared the VICTORY over each one.

      No, we can't break the vicious cycle. It is very sad.

      Maybe Society.....not the world. This world has the strength and influence to maintain as well as repair itself over and over again! The world will go on for generations to come....It's up to the generations that reside therein to do the "right thing"

      Nice concise poem.

      The image you have correlates with this short piece. You've scored a couple of "cool points" with me because I am also a poet from Louisiana. :)
