What have we done? #WednesdayVerses
I feel lost in this world,
A world which I once thought was beautiful,
For I don’t recognize it anymore,
And the evils that today it stands for.
Why have we built walls that divide,
When we can all stand united?
Why have we sown seeds of hatred and discord,
Instead of nurturing peace and harmony?
Where are kindness, compassion and love,
In this world darkened by terrorism and war?
Where are innocence and laughter,
Have we buried them so deep, never to see them hereafter?
What have we done with the world?
Let’s break walls that divide,
And build bridges of peace.
Let us keep our differences aside,
Let all this violence cease.
Why have we forgot to be human,
Why are we repeating the mistakes of the past?
Can we bring a ray of sunshine,
To this world for which hope seems to be lost?
Can we sow the seeds of love among all,
Nurture it with the virtue of patience.
Water it with tolerance for our differences,
And let peace bloom in this world of ours.
