To God, Where is the love?

To God, Where is the love?

A Chapter by Rose
"

I wrote this thinking of people who just hated me for being me and being strong enough to stick up for myself

"

To God

Love is hard to seek

If you want to know why

Then take a peek

At my life

Of terror and destruction

Everywhere I go

There is hate

And people getting hurt

There are innocent people dying

Crying out there

But nobody cares

Crimes are happening more and more

Cruelity is caused every day

But now its made into a joke

Dares thats what they say

Dares to cause people harm

 

I am not worth a thing to anyone

I will never accept rubbish off their tongues

I know they lie to me

All they want is to turn me into them

A poor sneaky little thief

With no heart

Who would steal a purse off a old lady

Pushing themselfs to be better

Acting hard in a gang

Showing off

Then stabbing a stranger in the streets

 

Back off!

I am normal!

They are not!

 

I won't be in prison like them

I will be left out

To be in misery

To be treated different

So where is the love?

Oh please tell me

Answer me God!

Answer me...

Where is the love?

The love is lost when man turns away from God. Good write raises good questions. I am always open to questions anyone has I will answer them the best I can. Good job, hang in there.

I know how this feels. Sometimes, you wish and thrive for an answer from God. But he doesn't answer because He wants us to learn from our environment and everything that goes on. He's not just sitting there, letting it happen. The Lord loves us but needs us to learn and accept and grow to love and trust in Him more. It's a test of our faith. Okay, sorry, didn't mean to preach. This was really good. And it was very true. So much goes on around us it's an emotional topic. You did very well writing this!!!!

I can understand your question..
I feel love is still abundant.. many of us
have hard lives a family without care..
love is in the eye of the beholder just like beauty..

This is well written, Rosie. Shows so much of society today and the question we all ask.. good writing.

I have been asking this question all my life. But with age I do see the so many people helping and doing all they can. We see the bad deeds and violence. We need to look at the food banks supported by donations from people and business. Many shelters for women sponsor by churches. My hero is Rachel Corrie. She was a Human shield in the Middle east. She die for strangers showing the world we care for all people. The test of living is to hold on to kindness and do what we can to make the world better. I pray the 3 billion plus people in this world learn war and violence will not leave any winners. A excellent poem. You made me think.

Although it is sometimes awkward in form and flow, this poem contains enough strength and potency in bitterness and longing that it is lifted above its superficial shortcomings. It has a lot of heart and honesty that carries it through, coupled with a harsh observance for the hard-edged inhumanities which go under the banner of God's creation..

"A poor sneaky little thief
With no heart
Who would steal a purse off an old lady
Pushing themselves to be better"

..These lines tell the unfortunate truth that is the fatal selfish poison of humanity..
Though technically a little uncomfortable at times, this is a good, strong, and thoughtful poem with commendable intentions.

I was expecting another sweet love poem, based on your other work.

The start appears to be a commentary on society, while later it appears to be more focused on a specific group, which confused me a little the first time I read it. I guess overall it's about society just no longer giving a damn, and accepting the world is a more violent place than it used to be.

For me, love is about those closest to you, it's hard to care when society doesn't want to confront the bigger issues.
