I sit and watch


I sat and i watch the world go by
An the more i watch, the more question i have
why do people discriminate
why do people kill each other
why do people do drugs
why don't some father take responsibility for their kid's
why do man rape woman
why do some man hit their woman, rather than treat them like the queen
they truly are
why is their war
why do people of the same race treat each other like crap
why do some people have more than other
why do people have to go to jail
why do the people we love have to die
why can't everybody just get along
why is their pain
why do people get their heart broken by the one they love
I guess i will never know, why?

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
