The World Can'T Take My Heart - Poem by Ann Lipkins

Hatred, selfishness, cruelty and hunger but the
world can't take my heart.
Users, abusers, killers and homelessness but the
world can't take my heart
Was there ever a world where people loved,
What on earth can people be thinking of?
Trampling and discarding other peoples’ feelings,
Making bad choices and unethical dealings
Babies are rapidly dying, parents are constantly crying.,
I've got to keep the love, cause........ the world
can't take my heart.
