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.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
