What happened to the world we live. (poetry)

What happened to the world we live
I’m shedding tears, my heart can no longer give.
Despair, pain and poverty make no sense
We falling apart and my soul won’t rinse.
I got no problems look at me, ya I got it all
Keep playing ya always standing tall even when I fall.

What happened to the world we live.

Where is the love ya I need some kindness
But you don’t see me from your selfish blindness.
Daddy died but I’m still your little boy
All grown up now forgiven no longer your toy.
Feelin alone nights hopeless nursing dismay
Can’t get no love, metoo keeps em away.
Fuck the hashtags this ain’t 6th grade
Talk to me real intimacy ain’t for trade.
We ain’t safe held back gotta love and push
Past the limits that keep our voices hush.

What happened to the world we live.

You left just like the others heart held under cover
Standing here exposed loved hard pain to hover.
Lived the pain of decades in the depression
We all struggling from the same repression.
No escaping the madness of the mind
Deep within is the only peace we ever find.

What happened to the world we live.

Wait. Turn around. Let’s please work this out
The cabinets of my heart are bare, full of doubt.
Baby, this is a mess just meet me in the middle
I’m confused and losing my mind just a little.
Pride has us all tossed up won’t keep us warm
Tides come and go but for you don’t make me mourn.

What happened to this world we live….

We kill each other over a book written 3,000 yr ago
Over a promise for a savior that nobody can know.
Stay true I often hear but isn’t truth held within
Or am I banished to a hell persecuted for my sin.
Church is a business of judging the good and bad
I’m just angry they took the best years of life I had.
No longer throwing myself on a cross I didn’t create
The cold nights of a broken heart they teach to hate.

What happened to this world we live.

It’s going to be alright this story isn’t close to done
Keep going don’t quit the race is far from won.
If we surrender the pain and love the good inside
We live on to breathe strong our glory we don’t hide.

This world is good it’s what we make it out to be
With love inside remember to daily take a knee.
I will keep loving and trying with all might given
So my dreams and hopes will not stay long hidden.

Keep going. Keep loving. This world is ours to live.
