Born In The Bad World


Born into a world of hate,
Love forbidden, hidden fate.
Born into a world so cold,
Tattered, torn-
broken, alone.

Living In an ungrateful place,
I've never seen my fathers face,
I'm trying hard to make a stand,
Nobody even lends a hands.

Never do I live, I die,
Most people never truly cry,
Born into a world of grey,
Where love begins and ends in pain.

    The reality of the land, where the loneliness is thought to be a gift. Your poem is the answer to that immatured generation, which is going after money and lust.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
