What are we today?

Civil wars killing millions, they say it is to obtain peace someday?
If it so when will that day arrive and what about the people we lost?
Turn the TV on and bloodshed you see, suicide bombings, bloody carnage...
How did young minds become so heartless to strap bombs around them?
Politicians clueless, power hungry, racist and ruthlessly inhumane...
How did they come into power and do they know what they are doing?
As collateral damage it's ok to kill women and children, did they say?
But what about their rights, their will to live, their stolen life span?
Young men dying, widowed women crying, homes lost and lives changed...
How can we allow the future of the world to be destroyed this way?
Color of skin defines us, religions don't agree, hatred and murder breeds...
Cant we believe in the brotherhood of man and hold one another's hands?
Too many high paying jobs but so many lonely people, looking for love...
Why is it so hard these days to express that beautiful emotion called love?
Dollar rises and hunger grows, AIDS, Tsunamis and felony join forces...
Why cant so much money be shared for health, goodwill and peace?
No more valuable family times, until one day it is too late to say Im sorry...
How can you hate your parents or siblings and live by yourself?

Where is the love, was it replaced by a flat screen TV or a sports car?
We are prisoners of high technology, free of intangible qualities...
We are prisoners of hatred, money, power and material gain...
We are a mean, egoistic, greedy, selfish, racist bunch of criminals...

Yes, that's what we are today...

Love is always bi-directional. I think people who act violent are those who have not received love or care. It is the responsibility of those with the capacity to change, to foster atmosphere of friendliness in the society.

This post is truly awesome and holds me in deep thoughts.

bi-directional ??


meaning u swing both ways ?

Keshi said...

Thanks Dewdy...I always wondered why young people are so cruel these days...you are certainly right about people who act violent are those who have not received love or care...but the fact that not every parent or gaurdian is able to give that very important thing called love to their children, is something that's hard to overcome na...how is this world gonna do it?

Saby u know wat, u just crack me up big time - LOL!
