A Poem by Li

I see all the good,
and I hear all the horrible.
The selfless parents adopting the sick kid,
and the husband who killed his pregnant wife and kids.
The girl who was bullied to death,
and the boy who risked his life to save a stranger.
There is light and darkness.
The purity and the utter filth.
There is hope and a lot of despair.
So much failure, and pain but also a myriad of success.
I give up at one point,
"that's it" I say, "this world has no hope."
But there it goes again, the spark.
And this morning I have faith in humanity,
I have faith in this world.
But I don't know if that's going to change again tomorrow.

The world is a f*cked up place no doubt. Some say the root cause is technology, some say money, some say greedy politicians, some say climate change. But i think no matter what it is; Wars, racism, femine and the likes is all Mans doing. So the root cause is humanity. we fucked it up but we are too busy blaming others and mistrusting each other to fix it. Great piece, thanks for sharing.
