Our "wonderful world"

by pinkalias   Nov 20, 2004


Hearts are blackened and bruised
tears are salty and sting
a poor little girl is abused
and has lost her will to sing.
white bleeds into red
the sky has transfered itself Gray
to hell the earth has been led
angels continue to stray

Minds are sick and collapsing
suddenly shortness of breath
pain continues relapsing
soon only nothing will be left,
voices continue to scream
victims are tortured and cry
wading in a crimson stream
souls are broken and die

People are losing their faith
hearts are broken yet reused
believing in a holy staith
then tied to tragedy's fuse.
outside windows are shattered
inside a bolted door
in the open people wont have it
enclosed they are begging for war

Children attempting suicide
fathers are beating them dry
mothers committing homicide
infants forgotten and die.

Girls are falling in love
ladies are losing their pride
pushed down from so far above
forbidden to hold their heads high
boys keep stealing and taking
they never give, only receive
love they are constantly faking
and vanish when begged not to leave

glasses and mirrors are breaking
the earth is a stained glass globe
minds constantly mistaking
the planet has broken it's code.
looking back at a distilled reflection
what has this world become
adding to the infection
the gates have only yet to come

rapists have stolen dignity
murderers butcher with ease
onlookers neglect integrity
victims add to disease

invisible scars are bleeding
wounds are reopened when closed
suffering monster are feeding
and our bliss seems to fade into woes...

*OK, this is actually a song, but unfortunately i cannot sing or play music so its going to have to stay on paper. I didn't add the chorus or it would have been like a million pages long but wtv...comment if you took the time to read it. *

    Grim, but poignant. There's got to be someone you know who can put it to music; work with you to develop an appropriate feel. Admittedly, having found out at the end that there is a chorus, I'd like to have been able to read that as well, long or otherwise.

    I've got to hand it to you, you've done a miraculous job on this. Each line transfers into the next so well, and it makes the poem flow.
    I really enjoyed this stanza-
    "Minds are sick and collapsing
    suddenly shortness of breath
    pain continues relapsing
    soon only nothing will be left,
    voices continue to scream
    victims are tortured and cry
    wading in a crimson stream
    souls are broken and die"
    ^ Those few lines are just so powerful. The way you invision the world is unlike any other before. You always leave me wondering. Excellent job. That was really moving.
