The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. - Eleanor Roosevelt


Crushed,
Alone,
Scared,
In a world full of nothingness.
Where hate and resentment rule our daily lives.
Not a single soul is innocent.
Not a single soul knows what is forgiveness.

I look towards the emptiness of life
Disappointed in what we have become.
Afraid of what our future holds.
Hoping for a better tomorrow.

The land that He created,
We've shattered into pieces.
Squeezed it until it had nothing else to give.
Taking its every resource to overpower one another.
To avenge one another.
To destroy one another.


The author's comments:
My inspiration in writing this was all the crimes and battles that have been going on. We have this magnificent world that is our home and we have so many advanced technology, and instead of using it to better ourselves and others, we use it to damage and hurt each other without thinking about the consequences. It's just not right.
