Where has the love gone

Standard

Time and time again

I always see the same ,

The propagation of mankinds shame

As love is lost again,

In the brutality of life

That do many justify,

Though denied their basic rights

Too many people die,

Where has the love gone?

Where is our humanity,

Where has the love gone?

We lost it in our insanity,

Young children suffering,

From the loss of their family,

Ripped apart from them,

Through war or political means,

We lock people in cages

I doubt they were born bad,

It was how they were brought up

And the truth is mighty sad,

Where has the love gone?

Where is our humanity,

Where has the love gone?

We lost it in our insanity,

I shed a tear,

I am choked,

At every death I see and hear,

I grieve for humankind

That has to live in fear,

I wish that we could change this

So we no longer have to shed a tear,

But many choose to live this way

Because they enjoy the drama it appears,

Or is it they’ve never known peace

Or realise how much better it is,

Where has the love gone?

Let’s get it back, right back here,

And instill it in our hearts,

Let’s restore our humanity,

And choose to be kind as a start

Let’s rediscover the love.

  1. More judging, and lack of compassion, and lack of vision for the beauty that is everywhere if we choose to see it. Your poem is the epitomy of irony. As is this comment. You attract what you put out there, as does this comment. Bring it. I am so so so tired. Just slay it.
