We Pull Apart Instead Of Helping Each Other

Updated on May 24, 2014

What Have We Done ?

In the only world we know

We find more ways to do harm than good

With every weapon and drug

We can kill the world many times over

Anialate the whole human race

Wipe us off the map forever

Destroying all the good

We are suppose to be more educated and highly suffisticated

There are thousands of books printed every year on every subject imaginable

Yet we rather watch t;v; than read

It is easier to pick a fight and do harm

Both physical and mental

Than it is to love

Every paper across the country brings the bad into focus

Mentioning minor goods

Over ruled by profits and visions of enormous wealth

We continue to fight an uphill battle

With no happiness in sight

Filling our minds with all that trash

Reality shows that teach us the wrong lessons

Instead of learning how to trick and outsmart each other

Whatever happened to working together

Making life something more than what are parents had

Something so great you can't wait

To tell a friend

When we all realize life does not have to end this way

We write our script and later act out our parts

That bring us deeper and deeper in the dark

Why do we always settle for less ?

Ending lovely marriages and accepting divorce

Allow crime to run rampant

Building more prisons to house our troubled youth

Instead of correcting the cause

We stand their waiting to solve another problem

No one man or woman can solve all the worlds problems

Together we can make anything work

It takes time and a whole lot of patience

Until we take life more serious and care

We might as well be an old pine tree rotting from the inside out

Sooner or later we will fall

Unless we can find many people to believe

This is our world

Our life

Work on changing the now

So we can change the future

To make sure this never happens again

      Oh, yes people should come together more for each other but a lot of people tend to withdraw and just think about themselves these days. That has got to change.

      shanmarie I believe self help information is a great start but then we have to put the time and effort to make it work. Which is never easy. Doing things together makes it fun and exciting. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      I think we are taught so much self help mantra today that may or may not play a part in pulling apart. Yes for self help because we can only really control our own happiness and destiny, but no to turning a blind eye and doing so without regard to others and selfishly doing so.

      drpastorcarlotta I am all for peace on earth. Not just in the future but now in our every day lives sharing it with all our friends and family. So many people spend every day complaining about all the bad in the world and they are too busy to even see or feel the good. I always love seeing you and reading your hubs. Thank you so much for reading mine and commenting.

      HappyMikeWritter If people continue to help each other slowly things will be better. It takes years to be in a bad place so it will also take time and effort to make things right. We all have to do our part and leave our ego's out. Thank you so very much for your comment.

      Seems this world is all about pulling apart and working on our own ego. If people were helping each other Life would certainly be a better place. You tell them DREAM ON! Another of your great article :-)
