Injustices of Life

Why do some put others down
do wrong with spiteful intent?
why do we get terrible storms
that wipe out whole villages?

See the poor homeless man
once his life was full
now he sits and begs
for a slice or two of bread

The young girl who only gets abused
what has she done to be treated so?
to have to live in fear every day
wondering when it will happen again?

Some people live lives of plenty
never caring anything for others
thinking I am ok in my safe world
its not my problem I don't care

Sometimes I want to rant and rave
against all of life's injustices
the foulness that surrounds
the evil deeds committed daily

    Beautiful write Shadow. In my philosophy I put it all down to Karma, and with this goes a faith in reincarnation, thank for your wonderful words...Peter
