Birds of One Feather

December 16, 2018

FREE WRITING

11
When you turn on the television,
The news is filled with dreadful visions.
Children crying and people screaming
And too many deaths that have no meaning.
 
War is just a futile fight,
Where morals are blurs; what’s wrong and right.
People kill faster than they blink
Like mindless robots, they just don’t think.    
 
Hurting each other; what is the point?
What our world comes to, just disappoints.    
Sometimes we need a glimmer of hope,
Otherwise, how could we cope?     
 
Unless we want the Earth in tatters,
We need to ask: what really matters?
It’s not money, possessions or power, 
It’s little things like laughter and flowers. 
 
Humans say for peace they yearn,
But how many times from mistakes can we learn?
We say we want to stop the pain,
But you can’t stop a drought by just thinking of rain.
 
We face problems not just one can bear,
So altogether we need to care.
We humans need to stick together
We are, after all, birds of one feather.
