As I saw in my eyes,
The world has flipped around me,
I used t thought there was no evil and harsh things,
But ever since I moved on my own,
My eyes opened as wide as a big theater screen,
Why God? Why?
You know what will happen at the end,
Why did you create people that are not perfect,
In your eyes?
Why do we innocent people have to see this?
Its painful and hurts alot,
My mind, heart, and thoughts changed,
I want to isolate myself from all of this,
I haven't meet anybody who is honest,
I have not meet anybody who isn't selfish,
Every time I think I made a good friend,
Whom I could keep and be friends forever,
Something comes in a way,
And it destroys my thoughts,
Why is it my instance wrong?
Why am I not feeling it?
Why God is not helping me?
I am totally clueless and I am not getting it,
What am I supposed to do when thing go out of proportion?
I don't understand why do everybody loves POWER?
What can power do for us? That can hurt others?
If God know all these things and the ending to all this,
Why didn't He make everything perfect,
And as clear as a crystal?
Just the way He wanted to do that in the first place?

    Humanness without God and the Holy Spirit produces the worst sort of population in the world. Great write on a topic that has plagued mankind since the beginning of the Devil being released upon us. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
