What Has Happened to Our World?

What Has Happened to Our World?

A Poem by Melina

What has happened to our world?
Where is the peace and love?
We gave up too soon,
Now we pray to God above.

What has happened to our children?
Do you hear their cries?
They are left alone unwanted,
They are waiting to die.

Where is our compassion?
It is overcome by greed.
Leave money and power alone.
Let's look for what we really need.

We need peace and love.
We need to come together.
Our future children don't have to suffer.
Things can't be corrupt forever.

Don't people believe in God?
What happened to humanity?
People kill, and people steal.
But aren't they scared of his penalty?

What has happened to our world?
Why do people live a lie?
How can you go to sleep in peace?
When millions of children cry?

How can you laugh and be so cruel?
When people don't have any food?
Why must people do nothing but bad?
What happened to the good?

What happened to humanity?
Why has the world become so cruel?
What happened to the people?
What has happened to our world?
