what is happening to the world

what is happening in the world 

What is happening to the world
It got bad to wors and people got hurt 
Always in name of religion 
why can't we not get along in the world

What is happening in the world.
Why do parents not  Learn their children respect
and learn live together in the world 
is there not enough hunger and pain

what is happening in the world 
It took me back to that place in my past 
fingers and body shiver 
tears  coming out 

what is happening to the world 
It was all for nothing broken heart of a veteran
heart that no longer can be made 
even an innocent child wil be used for hate
