“We Live In A Time”

"We Live In A Time"

“We Live In A Time”

.
Of great turmoil, and distress;

Of evil, and hatred,
Great horror, and regret;

Of,.. .

Dirty sands,
Empty lands,
Wicked hands,
And murderous bands;

Of,.. .

Evil works,
Deadly jerks,
Killing clerks,
While in the church;

Of,.. .

Hopeless whys,
Children’s sighs,
Government lies,
And mothers cries;

Of,.. .

Endless death,
That never rests,
Contentious threats,
The blood still wet.. .

We live in a time,
Of do nothing, and watch;

Of sadness, and crime,
And stupidity, un-thought.

  2. Don’t overlook the good. It’s easy to get so focused on the bad that we don’t see the good and the true balance that is life is forgotten. 💛

      This is true,.. . 😉
      But some things in life can’t be overlooked, such things as ISIS and the killing of innocents, government corruptions and involvements, etc.. Some things need to be expressed and shared, people need to speak out against such things.
      But yes, through it all, we mustn’t overlook, nor forget, the good as well in the world.
