Why I don't watch the news

Why I don't watch the news

A Story by KAREN BROWN

 It's so hard to watch the news,theres to much hurt and pain it's hardley ever good news anyway.

     People crashing in cars or planes,places and people getting robbed everyday

all the killing is so insane.

     Gangs feeling they need to fight using knives and guns,just to state a point and have their fun.

In the event they end up hurting themselves and innocent ones.

     We can be just driving down the street ,out of the blue someone starts honking at you

all you see is their lips moving and thier flipping you the birdie.

     Maybe because your going to slow or their just angry who knows.

There's so much violence,it's hard to stand ,then seeing and hearing families homeless

     starving and unsure of whats to do,sometimes not even sure who to turn too.

It breaks my heart and soul to see so much hurt and pain, I wish I could just take it all away.

     I wish I could make everyones life happier,safer be able to change everything forthe better.

I wish everyone could feel and be at peace is what i'd really like to see.

this is nice and i almost enjoyed the beginning, i think this reads
better as an insight or an essay, but with lack of depth it reads
dreary and kinda boring, and doesnt appeal to me personally,
but thats not to say that others wouldnt like it.
i think if it you took more time and the wording was choice,
i would read the entire story instead of losing interest after the first
few lines. let me know if you revise it.

Reading this prose poem, i feel that you're living in an Utopian world, which will never exist. I'll admit that the dark nature of most newscast, turn me off, too. But, it can also be used, as tool of mercy and light. As witnessed, after the 2004 Tsunami, in Asia. Sadly, it's the dark nature of newscast, which draws the viewers and just the advertising, paying for the 30/60/90 minute telecast. Thank you, for sharing this poem with us.

Your words reflect a kind hearted person who wishes all of the evil would go away. Sadly, we live in a world ruled by the flesh. Praise God this life is just a stepping stone into what will be forever. If more people had your point of view, wishing for peace, we could achieve that in a whole.

I enjoyed reading your emotional rant here. Good job!

It seems like everyone is always interested in getting in other's business,
Yet when it is your business, you wish everyone would keep to themselves.
Many understand it, few embrace it.
We do have television news shows to partly thank for desensitizing minds everywhere.
I do really like this piece, a lot!
Sorry for all of my unnecessary rambling....

I know exactly what you mean here. I don't particularly watch the news too often for the same reasons. A beautiful message within this piece!

You have a kind heart and a big one at that... just feeling the pain through your words makes me realize that I too feel the same way. There is so much hate in this world, it sometimes makes me wonder why I am still here. There is so much I want to do but such little can be done or will be done. I really enjoyed reading this and I appreciate you sharing it with me. Well done my dear.

Aw, this was really beautiful! Indeed, u hit it right on the head here. I hate watching the news as well. It's the same ole' thing anyways. That's why i have a computer to just give me updates about stuff. I dont need to listen for an entire hour or more for them only showing nothing but depressing events lol. I wished that there wasnt any violence in this world, too. Who needs it anyway? Nobody needs to die, or to be homeless, or be poor. I wish i was a billionaire so i can help this damn world of ours, and save what's left of it hehe. Wonderful poem!!!!
