Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

A Poem by Grace Eisenhauer
"

Frustrations on all the suffering I've witnessed...

"
Bandages don't heal unseen wounds
Even if we all know they're there
Sometimes life isn't fair
Life isn't fair

Horrific events occur as we're attached to our screens
Like we're stuck behind aquarium glass
Forced to watch but can't intervene

Unsolvable suffering overwhelms our world
And problems we can solve?
Still seem too massive to overcome
And I'll list you some

While hunger and starvation plague third world countries,
Millions still suffer with it in "The Land of the Free".

Even with amazing technological advances in medicine,
There are still many ailments and diseases even the most prestigious doctor can't cure.

Families all over suffer in maintaining stability,
Which affects their children in the long run.

Tragedies like mass shootings happen
In some of the most trusted buildings we know, like schools.

The world has many problems
And suffering is a human condition
I'm afflicted with this addiction
To save the world

But I'm no Atlas
My shoulders would be crushed under the world's weight
Yet I can't wait
To at least help in improving the world

We can't be saviors
So we need to be helpers, teachers, listeners, counselors, prayers

HOPERS
DOERS
