World Of Sorrow Part 1

World Of Sorrow Part 1

A Poem by Undying Glory
"

Finally, I'm back to raps. Here's another random rap on the world's problems...the first part, that is...

"
World Of Sorrow
Darkness, imprisoning day
As he watches the hours just bleed away
In a cramped, dirty room, in a big factory
Stuffed to the brim with little kids like he
Working so hard, making toys and goods
But not playing with them like little kids should
'Cause he barely has anything, not enough to survive
While you just go on with your perfect little life
As he struggles so hard, like millions like himself
'Cause you can't even bear to raise a finger to help
And as he sleeps and works on an empty tank
You're just laughing your freaking way to the bank
Wearing those clothes made by people like him
And a million others exploited by companies within

Another voice
Another soul
Lost in the bitter darkness
A world of sorrow
Another song
As it unfolds
Holds their prayers for happiness
For a better tomorrow

Darkness, imprisoning day
As she looks from her window in the endless rain
With the slashes on her left hand, scars on her right
'Cause you beat her and scream at her every day and night
Her pain's too much, it runs too deep
Far too much for any soul to keep
So she reaches for the syringe lying by her side
Filled with what she needs, for all the tears she's cried
And as she injects herself with the dose in her vein
She hopes she'll never wake up again
'Cause you never really knew, and you never really cared
About what you said and the bitter life she's had
To you she's just another one who's too far gone
But you pushed her to drugs, now look what you've done

Another voice
Another soul
Lost in the bitter darkness
A world of sorrow
Another song
As it unfolds
Holds their prayers for happiness
For a better tomorrow

Great rap. The flow is perfect. The scenes you describe are haunting but very realistic. I'd love to hear the finished product of this, if you ever do it.

Not long at all. Could be a rap, or could be a graphic novel in the making. Great job.

I'm totally speechless, you're poem is very touching. It's so sad people have to face such pain and misery in their lives, makes me value the comfortable life I'm living.
I like everything about your poem, really!
