Human Beings

Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008 with permission of the Author.

Wars, wars near and far,
Earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes.
All these natural disasters
So close to home,
Tearing up the earth, whirling 'round and 'round,
Destroying homes and even the land.

Humans dying,
People crying out
From all the pain.
Sickness, starvation, incurable disease
Eating away at humanity
From the inside out.

Crime and violence
As never seen before.
Murder for no reason at all.
Rape, innocent victims screaming out.
So many in prison serving time.
Suicide for those who no longer know what to do.

Disobedience of authority,
Including their parents,
Immorality of every kind.
All of these things happening
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
No peace in sight, or so it seems.

We need to look further
Before time runs out.
We only have one more chance
To make our lives better.
Don't give in to humanity's selfish plight.
Make the right decision for yourselves.
