The mad world

The mad world...... I want to live peacefully in this world but this mad world never allows me to do so When I wake up in the morning the sun doesn't arise When I go to bed in the night the moon doesn't shine The stars neither twinkle nor do the night birds hover Today, the church bells are ringing for the gay weddings and not for the opposite sex couples when they marry either The dogs and cats are playing cheerfully where as men and women are playing devil games that ending their life in hell The hatred politicians are coming back to power again and again and with their bad ruling, our poor masses are suffering and shedding their tears Today, the deadly weapons are freely available in the market and even the innocent school children are not spared for their life The father wanders at next door and the mother looks at back door wanting out and their children are miserably looking to find the love they're missing at home The music is no more melodious and its lyrics are weird words or meaningless that the dictionary can't even find their meanings. The say love is blind which is true because today its does not matter who comes in or goes out. Is this a mad world that we all are living in today?

    This is a subject I to have written about it does feel bleak doesn't it. Well although there are things we can not change we must see the good that is out there as well. Its a perspective I guess. I enjoyed your write and understand your frustration! Well done! Laura :)

    Ravi; You are so right. It is a mad world, where no one cares about anything or anyone but themselves. As I said once - for punishment of the Country - there are too many people in power. with one good person we could have stabitity. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem....... lucilla
