People can't even show
any respect these days,
Hurting each other
in so many ways;
taking many things
for granted;
Never sparing a thought
for those who have nothing.

Acting like they're the only people
whose lives are a misery;
what about those
suffering from poverty?
They can't even get a proper education,
but everyone deserves to
have a dream,
To one day succeed.

Some people only
care about themselves,
Not feeling any remorse
for those that are dying;
Not caring about the circumstances
in which they are living;
I guess they've never
heard of the term,
"It's better to
give than receive."

How can someone
be so mean?
Why can't they just
help those children in need?
Make a difference
in their life,
so they no longer
have to bleed,
It wouldn't hurt to
do one good deed.

Make the world
a better place;
Stop judging one another
on religion and race,
Come together
and embrace;
Do something simple,
Like putting a smile
on someone's face.
I wrote this because of the way some people act towards each other. There are a few people I know, who don't show any respect towards their elders. :cry:
I just thought I'd let my feelings out by writing the way I felt about their actions.

I hope you guys enjoy reading it and please let me know if you like it or not, any feedback is appreciated! :D

The time is when mankind has died. Now they are selfish, ignorant, rude, disrespectful. Someday, mankind will revive by a world war which I mean when they understand mistakes.

It's a great poem with wonderful sentiment and lots of heart. So many meaningful verses. Just really well thought out. Great work. As an aside I think there are many more good people than bad. It just sometimes feels the other way. Keep your head up and smile a lot, it's contagious.

Thanks for submitting to my favorite group,:iconsharpenededge:.

Have a really great day.<?xml:namespace prefix = da />Singing Laughing Relaxed dance and Heart .

Thank you for your in depth feedback! I appreciate it.
Yes, that's true, there probably are more good people, but negativity seems to be more popular in my opinion :crying:

:aww: I hope you have a great day too! :highfive:
