The World

.. The world 
a planet with sorrow and pain .. 
even earth is about to cut through his veins 

there is alot going in the world today 
earth a place so colorful .. yet in my eyes 
the world now looks grey .. 
they say history repeats itself .. 
a "great depression" is amongst us 
and this is just the beginning 
wait till we reach the eye of the storm 
they come in many sizes .. and this one 
can be seen from several miles away 
slowly it now takes its form .. 
the financial instabilities ... 
a proximate cause of World War II .. 
is this the destruction of the human rase 
the devil is known .. but he now got a face 
a new world order .. humanity's disgrace 
only the strong will survive 
and the weak have to die 
what is it they have in mind ? 
a holocaust ? .. 
the annihilation of thousands .. 
maybe millions of people .. 
and you say death is a raider ? 
who are they to take the life of a stranger 
let this be told only by god .. our only savior 
Do we gonna have to start all over again ? 
first they destroy .. then to rebuild .. 
but first half of the world has to be slain 
for god's sake imagine the pain we have to gain 
.. now ..... are you affraid ? 
because this is reality 
so best grip your hands together 
and now let us pray 
and hope for the world .. 
to never fade away

    If you are of a mind, and believe the Bible, this current world riches must decrease, so that the true riches be manifested. It seems that the economy is doing just that Marco. Enjoyed your view in your poem. Sincerely, Moses
