The world of 2017

The world of 2017

IMG_5629.JPG

We live in a world where-

misery is loved,
Violence ignored;

Hope is foreign,
Faith- turned scarce.

Living is dreary,
Dying is norms.

Tears have dried up,
The soil is bloodied.

Wealth is secluded,
Poverty- rampant,

Walls are put up,
Humans are shut out,

Colour is a measure,
Of worth of living.

It’s 2017,
And the life, many are living.

  1. I wish it were not true but you are right and it is true. That said, I admire you for talking about it in your poem because often people think ignoring the problem will make it go away, which it will not. It is only as we choose to deal with it, that it can get better. Respect to you
