Where Evil Begins

Where Evil Begins

There’s always evil all around
Nastiness is always found
Somewhere within this world of ours
So many wanting to have the power
They do not see that peace within
The minds are oh so filled with din
One soul hating the other one
And all of this it was begun

By those who want to beat the other
One who likes to fight another
Each pulling the other guy to bits
Each one trying to get the hits
Young children like to stick together
But grown Ups don’t want this not ever
They fill kid’s lives with competition
Creating more, and more division

They tell the kids ‘now you must win!!!’
They fill kids minds with lots of din
Give it your all and nothing less
They tell the kids ‘You must be best!!’
Why do we need this competition?
They raise kids so their only mission
That these kids they reach the top
To me it’s all a lot of rot

Evil never rests, it is this world and its ruling power now. To deny the dark is to engage in self blindness, IMHO. As a poet I oft write about evil/darkness because long ago I chose not to blind myself. A fav...

You are right Robert, the darkness is always there within us and so many fall into it. It is only when we find out who we are that the darkness gets squashed. This is the power we have within us that most people never find. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

Reaching the top to me means - being yourself, caring about others, and having fun every day. I am sorry for the competitive ones, for they do not fully live. What am I saying? I am ruthless in word games. But wait. I do not believe in competition for children. I think we should teach them to compete with only themselves. "Young children like to stick together" - why ruin that?

Hi Caren. What I want in life is to be happy. and be nice to everyone. My dad pushed me into competition and made me hate myself. All one seems to care about is being the best. I hated the way the schools made kids ambitious, but never taught anything about loving others, and being oneself. I could not wait to get out of their prisons. Thank you so much for your kind comments, my friend....Peter
