A World in Flames

We live in a world where no problems exist,

Where nothing matters except our next paycheck.

Where we're all blinded by the flames of hate we don't notice the world is on fire.

 

A world where abuse doesn't happen

A world where mental illness is just an excuse

A world where childeren are sold like cattle

A world where a man cant have been hit by his wife

A world where the color of your skin is avoided like the plauge

A world where drawing blades across your skin is a phase

A world where 'Me too' is just a cry for attention

A world where people get high just to escape their pain

A world where suicide is 'such a shame' 

 

A world where nothing exists but the happy things

A world in flames and we just roast marshmallows on it...

 

 

This poem is about: 
Our world

powerful piece

the people in the world have been plagued with hatred, and hopelessness.

it's about being the light that sheds through darkness

be the example that the grass is actually greener on the other side of the fence

this is well said, great job
