Why’s this world forever rotting?

War breaks out

we’re torn apart yet still continue fighting

endless days and countless hours

this world just seems to crumble

as we wait for someone to patch up these scars

we blind ourselves from the reality and let the world perish

We ignore the poor

We ignore the beaten

We ignore the damaged

We ignore the outspoken

We ignore earth

For what it is

It’s broken

Yet we wonder how it got that way

And we leave ourselves with the one question that remains with us through eternity...

Why is the world forever rotting?
