The World We Live In

We live in a world that makes no sense.

A world where words have definition. yet no meaning at all.

We live in a world where we feel sad for the poor,

Yet walk past those who ask for but measly spare change.

We live in a world where we scorn racism,

Yet complain when surrounded by Indians or Filipinos.

We live in a world where females can hold great jobs and earn good money,

Yet expect them to end their day doing housework all the same.

We live in a world where we give freedom to love,

Yet cringe when we see two guys sharing kisses.

We live in a world where we can’t choose who we fall in love with,

Yet are told it’s not okay to date another race.

We live in a world where marriage is a vow,

Yet those oaths are shattered and spit on all the time.

We live in a world where people worship different benevolent deities,

Yet judge and cause hurt to those who did nothing wrong but not believe.

We live in a world where it is hypocritical to say one thing and do another,

Yet give people advice when we can’t even help ourselves.

We live in a world that makes no sense.
