For goodness sake

by Michael   May 23, 2017

Our wonderful world languishes
within an open wound.
Bleeding prosperity dry
with our peace consumed.

Weeping anguish from humanity
Congealed into a pulp of insanity.
Shoddy patchwork continues to fray
concealing beneath what rots and decay!

The lining of life ripped and shredded.
Insatiable claws are deeply embedded
A failing fanatical and fractured faith
So who shall we pray, to keep us safe.

Dear to whoever this should concern...

My mind mulls in a twisted churn.
I write not to request, but a heartfelt plea
To help make sense and help us to see.
I am a devoted father of two.
Who I adore and cherish,
as any loving
parent would do.
To protect them as much
as I can, from any
paths of a darkened

I hear it is said, that you are a great
and mighty guardian of
all earthly creatures.
In comparison I possess none of
those terrific, titled features.
But if you are one of incredible vigour
rescue your children from this unstable sphere.
We dwell within a hysterical state.
Enough is said, I lie in wait!

But just to add...

Hell-bent chimes from billigerent bells.
There cannot be, enough eggshells.
For life to carefully, walk and tread.
Nor graves, to bury the undeserved dead!

    Michael, no one in this world is happy with the things going on.
    Do you think Bill gates or Mark juckerberg are happy?
    No, because they want the things happen in this world according to them which they can't do, they know this.

    Of course they are rich, they can control economies, but not natural calamities or the other actions of God which you mentioned in the end.

    Even, I find myself upset with papa(God) about certain things which happens around me. But he never answer to anyone.
    I know his ways of doing things hurt us, but sometimes it brings us closer too.

    And he has left an option for us to understand why he does this or that; it's called enlightment. But it's a very tough path to choose.

    enlight yourself and become one with the creator to see what he is seeing and why he is doing.

    And I am sorry, if I have offended you with my comment.

    Love and light!

      Mr L
      No offence taken at all...
      Everyone of us has an opinion and perspective in life, and this is our human right. I see a world in trouble, and for sure the powers of this earth, do not help somewhat. And yes the unknown forces have been naturally occurring for endless years. But faiths are strained because of all the mess in our world, and it does feel like we have little help
