Why is the world filled with so much negativity?

DISRESPECT and HATE,

People continue their RACIST WAYS,

This goes on for days and days.

 

Kids getting RAPED and ABUSED

SCHOOLS GETTING SHOT UP

COPS SHOOTING BLACK PEOPLE

people waking up on the cracks.

So many unsolved murders

More and more people dying each day.

What’s wrong with this world?


Well, I Have a Vision that someday people in the world will show more respect.

Have less hate and disrespect than we expect.

Although the world is full of disrespect and hate.

Our people could reunite and make the world great.

 

Very much work it could take

Everyone should be treated with kindness

all people should get rid of their blindness

don't matter your differences or interests

respect should always be given

everywhere you're driven

always and forever

make this world better together


The author's comments:

As I turn on the news or read a newspaper I hear and read about all the things going on in the world I live in. It's sad when I hear that somebody is getting murdered almost every single day and their murders become unsolved. This also happened to my uncle about two years ago. So I just wanted the write a poem about the world we live in, and how I have a vision about the world becoming better.

What a great young man you are Jakobie. Just as the nation is wondering how this murder/shooting menace can be halted or minimized, here you come with yet unsung potential. It is from poems and ideas like you have unleashed that other people take to develop and implement, thereby changing the world positively. Your writing (1) touches people's hearts, (2) puts a burden upon people to act and make the world a better one to live in, (3) , gives the world a hope when boys of your age stay away from gun and instead think positively like this, and (4) Your writing changes people's way of thinking and therefore helps transform the whole world. Thumbs Up!!!! You are amazing.

Way to go SON !!!, I absolutely love it,, you're such a handsome and extremely intelligent young man with a grand future ahead, you're gifted in more ways than one. It touched me in such an emotional way how you used what happen to your great uncle and made a poem of it. Not only that, you fully expressed all that has touched your life into true heartfelt words. Im so proud of you for who you ARE and for all that you will BECOME. The world needs more young men like you to shine some light and fade out the darkness, im blessed to have you as a son..... Love Always.... MOMMY
