A Poem by Lyingwithlions
"

There is no doubt I feel great sadness & anger for the way this world has evolved. I hold close to my heart and being, all the spirits of the lives lost because of it. For them my hope is stronger!

"


I am ONE man in A world of Seven Billion
It's hard for me to see so many that are nothing like me 
What have we still as a whole created and become? 

Wars have devastated us
In a world maybe Four and a half Billion years old, 
why in less than Three hundred years,
Have we never come so close? 
Is this what we chose? 

From the first day of our lord, 
We received the choice 
Over two thousand years have past 
Looking back to where we all began, 
To now where we have come,
This day.....

I just don't understand!! 

At last, this time to shall pass 
So we better wake up now and do something fast 
For the lack of all we haven't done, 
For all those that need love and healing
Whom we've let down while being on the run 

What do you think springs from children victimized by war? 
I wonder, is mercy one? 

Blessed to be where I am from 
I have no way to possibly ever understand 
What it would feel like to be alive
Fearing for my life in every second that goes by, 
Day after day in my own homeland

Who? 

Fools that follow greed and lust 
I would love to see them spin,
Then spun wild after greed, 
While thrust right over the edge
Into their pit they dug 
Their dust never to be heard of again. 

I wish!

I just let my mind have my words,
The result is this
That's just how I feel
For I know there is nothing more
I could ever ask for that is more real. 

Which is peace and to ALL goodwill
If we don't stop allowing those who murder at will, 
Chasing after spoils as blood spills 
We will never begin to heal. 

This world will continue to spiral straight to hell. 
So I'm yelling with all the spirits of my being, 
To ALL those who are just like me,
With a soul that can see, 
It's time to start SCREAMING!! 
At the tiptop of your lungs
It's time to truly live and be free. 
Start believing, we can change. 

 "The strongest among us should be our SERVANTS and the weakest should be treated like your kings" -Jesus 

Only then will our world be as glorious as meant to be
No matter a man or a myth,
These words are FOREVER real! 
In this world where you feel,
Therefor are feeling me now, 
Is all we have ever so real. 

We were given this chance 
Don't let it pass without substance 
Fill it until it overflows!! 
The time has come. 
It starts with one. 
Set your words free. 
They will take on a life of their own.

I enjoy your ponderings, because ponderings are the beginnings of the edges of wisdom. We don't have answers to the great truths. I am a scientist, but I understand that I don't have answers, but maybe I've questioned the answers others give more than most. It is a good thing. We want to be clear and understand what we know and don't know. We mostly don't know, but we want to be careful that we don't just grab at something to fill this void. We need to be aware whether we know something or we're just searching. Knowing is so hard and doesn't apply to most of human endeavor. Struggling just like most. Benefitting in some ways from my education and life's experiences, but I know that this is still a limited point of view.

Trying to share. Failing in many ways. Struggling to move forward.

Best regards,

great topics! such mountainous issues surround us and it is easy to feel small and defeated but you gather a strength and hope in this poem that is refreshing. I really liked the way you combined ideas of science and god. "no matter man or a myth, these words are forever real" really resonated with me. I recognize with no religion and find myself a science based thinker but I too see the value in the words whether they're from a real man or a myth. well written! continue to keep the hope, you're not alone!

This is beautiful! Truly inspiring. I agree about the state of the world. This system is broken and but I believe there are enough good people to change it. It's just not happening yet.

Thank you for sharing. I loved it.

I agree.
"We were given this chance. Don't let it pass without substance. Fill it until it overflows!! The time has come.
It starts with one. "
Old wise saying from somewhere. "Put your hands into the stream. Create a new movement. Allow your thoughts, hope and dreams to expand. Maybe the movement of water can expand and multiply till one day. Peace and kindness/concern can be found.'' Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Would be a better world if we wanted a ocean of hope and kindness and you are welcome.
I like reading what I say in a Muslim context in the Christian way. Two thousand years is a LONG TIME to just watch the wars over and over again! And, the seven deadly sins say much about conduct to avoid. Nice piece!

This write is simply awe inspiring! You have voiced what I think many people may be feeling but are not motivated enough to act on. Well done and it is so good to see you here at the WC :-)
