We Wish It Is Not True

Our crazy hurry outwits our wits
We wish it is not true. the car speed.
The restaurants. the caution in the winds.
The rape and early sex the little child
Now knows, whose overwhelming juvenility
Had made men mad and wild 
We too are perpetrators of the deed
That beckons wails and mourning
For with each dawn, true sense's warnings
Is out our dirty door. we too that bear 
Pain's monstrous knife pierce our tender hearts.
Not just the cat burglars, beware
At whose wasting call joy departs
Or the inane thugs in the creeks 
Who adulterated our kerosene
And operate on the filthy lane;
Where accidents and deserters are the bane
Of this dying days. killing the savior of
The crying child. making us handicaps,
Our earnest dreams elusive as elusive can be
And making mere men elements of sheer disgrace.

    Well said my friend. Crime begets more and worse crime. We must bring back the kind of laws that punish criminals and make people think twice before committing a crime. The laws today are too lenient with criminals and too strict with the average citizen. Good Write here. God Bless, JB

    Ingibo, our world is filled with so many tragedies. It is especially painful for me to hear about a child being molested. But I don't like the traffic on streets and the waiting in restaurants. Maybe we can find a way to make this world a better place. That is my prayer. Beautifully written poem -- touched my heart. Love, Carolyn

    Yes, there is much horror in the world. The last line of this poem sums it up completely, Ingibo.
