The World

The World

A Poem by Jeweliet

I see the World for its true colours,

it is green, and blue, and yellow.

It is jealousy and greed,

and the unchecked desire for destruction.

It is sadness and despair:

the cries of the forgotten rising from below.

It is melancholy and ignorance;

out of humanity in the need for power.

I see the world, wishing for passion,

 for love, desire and forgiveness

I see the world truly,

it is flawed.

I guess that’s one way to look at it, but the world is what you make it. Nevertheless you’ve done a great job putting this piece together.
Excellent write.

Yeah the world is harsh ain't it? haha sad a 13 year old knows this o.O Really adults aren't that good at stopping us from finding things out...I mean come on! Your whispering, but maybe you should whisper a little quieter though I guess it goes with my name Fallon and then my nickname Falcon like bird ears!! lol! Nice though I like this poem it's really awesome and explains a lot keep it up!

Very well put. I agree. I like this poem, it's short and blunt. The last line is my favorite, it sums up so much with just three words. Brilliant job! :D

This is a damningly strong poem. It tears at the negative effects of the world with a bitter and lucid anger. The words are stamped down on the page rather than written.. But with a touch of tenderness at the end which balances this piece nicely. But the last two lines remind you of its intentions...
A good piece of work.
