Although I'm trying to build a new life
and face the cruelty of the world,
I find myself standing all alone.
Over and over...
I keep asking myself the same question.

How could things be better?
If everything seems worse than they did yesterday...
How could the world be changing?
If I still see cruelty, robbery and murder...

I can't longer control the emptiness
and sadness of my heart.
All the tears, fears and pain
are starting to destroy my inner beauty.
You, the one above...
you're the only one that could save it.

Writing poetry's just a way
to make my life last and
forget about the cruelty of our past.
I try to smile when I have to,
but I cry when others are not around.

When will be the day in which
things will change? No more fears,
tears, hate and loneliness.
Our hearts will be full of love and respect.

    Hey i love this poem as with all of your stuff, but the cry for good is just wonderful, the battles that everyone struggles with, most of which want there to just be love and good things, but cant escape their struggles. there is a hope though with this generation of people to make that change, it is something i see heavily embedded in this generation. to make a change. to make things better. all of us still full with hope. dont lose that. take care my friend
