In This World - Poem by Priyanka Shetty

Why can't we co-exist,
Why are we rich and poor,
Why are we jealous of each other.

It floods in a place,
and the other sees a drought,
Why only one eye has tears.
Why this inequality it's worth a thought.

Why this distance between friends,
Why the silence in the hearts,
Where is the love?

Why is it so difficult to be true to someone,
Why so easy to leave and move on.

Why do they fight in the name of god.
When there is only one god one religion.....
Thats love......
