Wake-up call

Real life tragedies, 
this world is at it's end.
What more bad news can we get,
another life taken from man made weapons,
or a parents careless mistake?
Nowadays drugs easily reaching the school aged children,
parties ending in shame,
opening the public's eyes.
Being a cautious driver won't save you from,
a text the other driver couldn't ignore,
or the drunk driver that couldn't call a friend.
Courageous some acts of kindness are, 
like the teacher that hid her class in silence,
saving their young lives,
the Boston Strong citizens carrying on selfless acts,
or the good Samaritan,
that didn't ignore a child left in the heat while parents shop. 
Perhaps there is hope,
we just have to see the positive in a negative,
and come together to create a strong nation.

    There is the blessing and the curse in this life. There is no singularity. Ambiguous? Yes but interesting and provocative nevertheless. Your poem reflects on both incongruities..

    Society falls deeper into the abyss. So fightening and shameful. So much stark truth in your words. Well written :)
