"Our fathers were our models for god. If our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about god? Listen to me. You have to consider the possibility that god does not like you; he never wanted you. In all probability, he hates you." -Tyler Durden

A world on the verge
Of a complete collapse
In order to change we need a surge
a surge of care perhaps

A world of loss
One life or all life
What is the cost
Of our strife?

A world that can change
But never will
No matter how we arrange
The world stands still

A world driven by the dollar
All actions for profit
Our Ozone gets smaller
There's no way to stop it

A world full of evil
The evil of men
The crimes of the feeble
Are committed again and again

A world with a future
Not so bright
The person you are
Won't change over night

A world completely unsteady
Compromised by its technology
People are not yet ready
To give the world an apology

A world on the verge
Of obliteration by its own means
Unless we merge
Our world lies in the hands of teens

I wrote this for my English class at the beginning of the school year. The assignment was to write a poem about change, so I did. Everyone thought it turned out well, and I thought some inspiration might do the world some good.
