Nothing Is Right

Nothing Is Right

A Poem by Olumegbon
"

Just a bit of my perception

"
The hope and quick disappointment,
The joy of birth and tears of death,
The green feelings and withered love,
The smooth relationships and painful heartbreak, 
The deep trust and sudden betrayal, 
The sacrifices and efforts that vanishes in vain,
The lies told to put bread on the table,
Would that be a sin?
Or a means of survival?
The ones we deceived just to look righteous,
Scared of their response to our flaws,
The self-guilt it conceived in us,
A burden we carry forever,
The hard-work and daily stress in the pursuit of vanity,
Nothing is right,
How do you feel when you take a life?
Lie to a brother?
Steal from a friend?
Hurt a lover?
Disappoint a mother?
Betray a partner?
Deceive a congregation?
Loot from a nation?
But we don't feel, we just do it,
Concerned only about our welfare,
Even the flesh betrays the soul sometimes,
Maybe the afterlife holds the answers,
That's a mystery we would never come back to tell,
I'm human so I may be wrong,
But my perspective still insists,
That in this life of ours,
Nothing is right

Giving my a lot of hangups and huts to overcome before it all done I bare my soul to the Lord of host before I give up my ghost.

I appreciate the review Rudi, thanks
This is the sad reality we live in. As humans we have become so selfish. Morals are more often forgotten. However, we cannot blame ourselves too much. We are merely humans. Life sometimes throws situations at us that we need to act a certain way in order to achieve a certain goal. I cannot judge.
I do not comment often, but I love this poem.
Very raw and real. Keep it up!

I really appreciate this comment, thanks a lot.
I agree and I liked the poem. Honest and truth in every line.
"I'm human so I may be wrong,
But my perspective still insists,
That in this life of ours,
Nothing is right"
I see people being killed, cities destroyed and sickness/hunger out of control. Are the leaders of our world blind. USA will spend a trillion dollars on war. Little on the gift of kindness. Food, water and medicine. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Have missed your writing. This has a lot of home truths that seem to just flow off the tongue and down the page.
