The Truth About Nothing - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

what value
places on life
saddens me
when i hear
old people saying
they're afraid
to leave their
houses for fear
of being mugged
and/or beat to death
when innocent children
are molested and
worse yet killed
when people
in high places
are unveiled as liars
nothing seems to
be what matters
in this modern age
the truth is the
value of a thing
is what we place on it
what it really means
honor life and
you will live forever
