Why? Is The Question That Has Been Left Unanswered - Poem by Jorge Luis Hernandez


Why is racisms still alive?
Why are ideologies of hatred and segregation engraved in people’s minds?
Why can’t we see that our ignorance causes pain?
Why instead we center our lives around popularity and fame?
Why don’t we lend a hand to each other and help each other off our feet?
Why do we kill in the streets and yet still try to be discreet?
Why has humanity set limits on the opportunities to pursue happiness and achieve success?
Why are man made borders preventing us from the rest?
Why has hate, jealousy and greed evaded our world?
Why don’t we appreciate what God has blessed us with?
Why do we overlook the future consequences and keep exploding the meaningless?
Why hasn’t civilization reached the epiphany, that God has provided us with everything we need?
Why do we look down at the quote weak?
Why do we idolize the ones who have arrive at the peak by executing white collar felonies?
Why has poverty developed superior creped its way crossed the globe?
Why do ignorant souls keep denying global warning?
Is the question we need to ask ourselves each and everyday
Because if we let that question go unanswered
It only feeds corruption and enforces misguidance
If we ever find the answer
It’ll prevent chaos and insanity from developing faster
