Land of Confusion by screamingdigital Land of Confusion by screamingdigital
Now did you read the news today
They say the dangers gone away
But I can see the fires still alight
There burning into the night.

Theres too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love
to go round
Cant you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands were given
Use them and lets start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

9. Change and Judgment (by ME) (March 19th, 2012 Monday A.D.) (I wrote this because everything seems to happen too fast, and the world should just slow down. :( People are trying to make themselves seem so mature and special at such a young age, which isn't a bad thing if it's true, but they seem to put others down and make them seem wrong and worthless. :( Where did things go wrong when the servants overthrow the master? What is the meaning of life supposed to be? :( Sometimes something so simple can be so hard to understand...)

Part 1

The world goes by too fast,
With people running around,
Breaking bones and straining muscles,
And giving themselves a cast.

What are we to learn from the wisdom of the past?
New things come around,
Replacing the old.
Was what was once gold never meant to last?

The bad and impatient get things first,
So they make themselves seem more important.
The good and the patient wait silent,
Til the day when they have their passion burst.

What does it mean to be free?
What does it mean to have hope?

How can the world start to see?
How can the differnces we have be coped?

Is life without a purpose,
When the world is as slow as tortoise?

Why do things need to change so soon?
Our dreams get built up on nothing but sand,
Carried out by false ambitions,
And get blown away like a desert's dune.

Does life mean nothing when others can't understand?
We are all human with the same skin and eyes,
But at times we get blinded by hate and filled with lies.
We make mistakes of blunder and find it hard to stand.

What is that we use to see the truth?
What is that we abuse to hear only lies?

How is that we feel so much pain?
Yet we taste the sweetness of compassion?

And all in all, we smell both the life of a flower,
But also the rotting of our own spilt blood.

Part 2

A tiny seed may be only a seed,
And it may take years to grow,
But even that turns into a tree,
To blossom forevermore.

And when the leaves fall off,
And the past is shed,
That does not mean,
That is is dead.

For the cycle of life and death come again and again,
With the past being renewed,
And the future bears newfound glory with fruit,
That inside comes seeds that make it start all over.

If plants can do that, why can't animals?
Why do we feed off of our own kind,
Hurting more than helping,
And turn into a pack of savage cannibals?

The future takes time,
The past has wisdom from failure,
The present has oppurtunity,
And all in all, it tells a story of progress.

What we get from the start is an opinion,
But from the morales it may teach,
If it all it is something good to preach,
It becomes a fact to carry out and understand.

One day the world may become at peace,
And we stand hand in hand in harmony,
Working together to create salvation,
And all in all, life is but an endless dream...

Wow... So beautiful... <3

I try to make poems like this too. I don't want to post them until people comment on my stories first, if they ever do, but I have them saved on my computer.

This totally reminds me of the poem I just wrote this morning. o.O
