Is this the world I live in? *

Is this the world I live in?
Where everyone lives a life
built on an edifice of lies;
where everyone can see only hatred
in each others eyes.

Is this the world I live in?
Where everyone wears a mask,
a mask of pretence;
where everyone's deeds,
are a punishable offence.

Is this really the world I live in?
Where the innocent is crushed
till he can no longer stand,
where the right and the truthful
have no power in their hand.
Where the weak is tortured
till he dies,
where justice to everyone
is denied.

What kind of a world is this
in which I live,
where all I can hear are fatal cries.

Hell does exist,
cant you see,
beneath these boundless skies it lies,
beneath these boundless skies
it lies...

    this gave me goosebumps. It's really tragic isn't it, when we kind of take a step back and really take in what all is going on, what all is happening around us. There ARE some extremely gruesome things still going on in the world and who knows if they'll ever end..? Wow, sorry to sound so pessimistic lol It makes me just as sick. Really good read though, Hon

    The world is dishonoured, and it's getting worse year by year. Real Example - Few days ago I heard that a step-father burned his baby child. Demons are everywhere.

    Unfortunately we people are living in this world only, where we can easily find sin and sinner.

    I adore the way you have paragraphed this poem. Each paragraph is speaking the great truth what we are actually viewing. The ending is great. It's good that you have used the term "HELL".

    Yaa! It's true that Hell does exist and I accept as true that in colossal amount many people will fall in the sea of fire for everlasting punishment. And if hell exists then probably Heaven also exists...... so we people should also be bliss for we will get the everlasting life in the home of the Lord Jesus Christ with Jesus Christ.

    This poem can really bring unwise people on right track. Very fantastic work done by you. Full marks.

    Wow, this took the thoughts right out of my head. This world has become, in your words,:
    "Hell does exist
    cant you see,
    beneath these boundless skies it lies"
    That is so very true. We people walk about and blame the innocent and praise the guilty. How have we as a human race let ourselves come to that. You did an amazing job here. I love this poem! 5/5
