WE CAN’T ESCAPE OURSELVES

WE CAN’T ESCAPE OURSELVES

I guess that I don’t quite understand what’s been happening to our world,

We’re In It together, none of us can run away and hide from the destruction.

Everything Is taken for granted as If we are owed something from somewhere,

One man Is waiting for the next to take care of the problems that exist.

I think at times we all try to hide and close our eyes to make It go away,

Our world Is being destroyed for money, the mighty dollar Is evil In a bad hand.

There is so much wrong doing from one side of the globe all the way around,

The world Is not bad, those whom do not care, the ones whom will do anything for a dollar

Are the bad, Pollution, crime, and corruption are destroying gods beautiful creation.

He rests out there somewhere watching as we slowly fade away one day,

There Is much more to say but we can’t escape ourselves until our day to go away.

  1. I once had a greeting card which read: “Wherever you go, there you are”. Truly your poem says it, we can’t escape ourselves–so it’s good if we can learn to love, or at least accept “us”.
