There is so many troubles in the world. It's sort of sickening isn't it? I find that writing helps to express feelings about not just fictional things. I'm not usually a political writer.

Wanting To Lie

Oh how I wish I could lie-

Lie about the things I must see.

The world is a black hole spiraling downward.

I am not quite sure how it got this way-or why infact-

All I know is simply-it has.

The mystery pulls me so-

boggling at our minds- in Earth, love is no longer a value.

Does the majority of our minds not think-care?

Oh how I wish I could lie- really I do!

about murder-hatred-greed

Do we truly not remember

what we were based on?

I cannot help but want to lie...

I liked it! I totally have to agree with you because this country is forgetting what we were based on...God's forgotten in this country.

I agree. The majority of the human population has stopped caring-or even acknowledging others. Earth should be a place of harmony and happiness, but the greed and jealousy of humans have tainted that once serene image-And the image really did not last long at all.

Not long at all. Its good to find others who understand the melting used-to-be of our planet. I'm glad to find that you agree how pale people's love is getting.

Me Against The World

I wrote a paragraph in a fanfiction once that ws very simular to this poem. I love the idea naturally. Briliant minds think alike! Hehe!
