My World- your horror story

Poverty ,big words strong words meaning,
See a different world from the one I'm seeing.
Dehydration, ill communication, bad nutrition and bad sanitation.
Lights camera action life's unfolded, children growing up beaten and scolded. 
You lie awake with cuts and roses,
No tombstone could pay for the pure you revolted.
Eat your veg,
Don't do drugs,
Scrap that do whatever is good-
Advice from the dumb.
Listen while they wail and moan,
You listen to the voice who's still unknown.
Stranger danger, red lights flashing.
But someone cut the circuit you think it's normal,
He compliments your smile and you feel wholesome
No, he said it was a secret
Call to help?
No, Who is going to listen?
Poverty, big words strong words, meaning-
I have a different world from the one you're seeing.

    I am thinking, you hit the nail on the head!! Great write.


    Wow... That was powerful
    So much so I had to read over.
    Your vibe is strong
    Keep doing what your doing

    It's a world of extremes for certain. You speak as if you know. This work is very strong and oh so true. And that's the hell of it these days.
