Those who deny freedom to others , deserve it not for themselves. (Abe Lincoln)


The world I see is black,






But also golden in my view.


War rages on,




But peace tries to renew.



Hate paints a picture across our world





In my eyes






But love sketches the stars,





Bright in the skies.



Anger pulls the world’s people





causing them to rue.





Danger flits around,






A dark streak of hue.



But Joy becomes a rainbow’s toy,





Mending hearts , a few.



The world, in my eyes, is entwined




Love
and hate , a constant war,





A constant debate.

This is a poem I wrote as an entry for a poetry contest but I also wanted to share it on teen ink to get some feedback. I hope people will understand the balance between bad and good, & light and dark in this poem because the world is full of shadows and sunlight.
