We Did It To It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Whatever the intention of this World had been,
God made it.
For our benefit.
And whatever the intention of this World had been,
We added conflict and confusion to it.
With a consciousness denied,
To not admit.

Whatever the intention of this World had been,
God made it.
For our benefit.
And whatever the intention of this World had been,
We turned it,
Into a home for misfits.

Lieing on another whether sister or brother.
To do this to ourselves with a consciousness,
Does not benefit.
And deceiving to defeat somebody just to do it,
Does not benefit.
Rising crime and violence with corruption done,
Does not benefit.
Anyone.
When somebody stumbles to fall on their back,
Many will laugh with words to attack.

Whatever the intention of this World had been,
God made it.
For our benefit.
And whatever the intention of this World had been,
We added conflict and confusion to begin.

Whatever the 'World' is today we did it to it.
We did it to it.
Violence and feeding on crimes of all kinds.

Whatever the 'World' is today we did it to it.
We did it to it.
Bigotry and hatred everywhere to exist.
We did it to it.
We did it to it.

Whatever the 'World' is today we did it to it.
We did it to it.
Disrespect and more to get.
We did it to it.
We did it to it.
With less respect and less to get.
We did it to it.
We did it to it.

Whatever the intention of this World had been,
God made it.
For our benefit.
And whatever the intention of this World had been,
We added conflict and confusion to begin.
To not admit.
God made it.
For our benefit.
Whatever the 'World' is today we did it to it.
We did it to it.
We did it to it.
Not to admit.

    Very emotional use of words that speak of the mess we have made of things. Good ink (Report) Reply
