"The World and its People"


Uplifting Story: “The World and its People”

The world has so much potential
In which lies in the species who create it
Although this is true, its full of despair and sorrow
The world is corrupted, full of lies, deceit, lust, despair, and misery

People are homeless and poor
People are brokenhearted
People are treated badly and degraded
People are jealous and act on their intentions
People are selfish and full of greed and put themselves first with no regards for their brothers and sisters

Despite this, we see beauty in many forms
Such as giving a helping hand to those who need it
Those who show compassion and sympathy
Those who desire to help others and save humanity from its distress
Those who show genuine concern for others’ affairs and well-being
People who treat others equal and do not judge them
This is the beauty we see despite the world’s ugliness

For those people who are in despair
Beauty and happiness seems far away
One person’s experience might not seem serious at all in another’s eye
But individuals perceive hurt and pain in various ways
Which is still felt deeply within one’s heart
Whether it is physical, emotional, or environmental

So the question is “How do we see beauty in these painful situations and experiences
In order to provide healing, peace, and happiness?”
I believe that beauty lies within us only
And when we find it, we are able to let our beauty shine on others
And we can do all the things that our heart desire more effectively
With more heart and soul because we have an identity
We’re sure of ourselves

When people try to put us down
We will look in the mirror, smile, and think about all our positive and unique traits
Because everyone of us is unique and possesses a variety of trait(s)
In which are magnificent
That reflects color, instead of black and white
And we are all able and capable of providing support and healing to those in need
That can change people for the better and shape this world into a better place
We as a race have the ability and potential to make earth more like heaven

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”

that's my girl...that's my girlbouncy
the bounty of hope is on the regions of hope and geniune praise we give onto god when we bend on knees showing complete ownership to the creator in the individual solace of thoughts we all imagine that perfect world my dear... in that regard the imperfection resinuated also in this piece which allowed you to own some of the confines that are the endeavors of being human such tactful digress of judgement to the redicule in people, prospecting property of disperation where we all hope to conquer all on battles... love is the construct indeed....love:rolleyes: a fallacy within a enigma for the all mighty has unconditional! a level of parenthood we conceive, but the candid truth can and could our fellow brothers and sisters be able to recieve that love! the canvas of a stranger to a beloved family member.!.. a ensemble of love is the giving unselfishness by Jesus to sacrifice himself for the benefit for "mankind"... now its so hard to find the procrastination to give a man with a cardboard box even a second glance or hand out, or the stereotypes that we get caught up in! your written process of how you unveil the world and its people is a imaginative awe i am in of you.. due continue, due continue to write... review... analyze... evolve.... grow... ponder in the six degrees of your third eye when it shows you the truth don't be afraid of the inspiration that shall flow over your heart and mind...>!>. i will be there along the way to give you that seal of approval being proud fellow poetess

Hello Smeary,

Thank you so much for responding. You are right in that most people won't' be able to receive God's massive love. In order for them to receive, they must first grow and become the person God wants them to be and after they have passed the tests, then he can begin to work within them. God promises to take care of our every need, if we put our total trust and faith in him. I think that this is the most greatest challenge of life, because it's all or nothing. You can't read the bible, pray, and go to church if you are still doing things that are unholy. All or nothing. People today pray to God and wonder why he doesn't answer their prayers or take away their despair. Well I believe it's because he wants to change them first, so that they can be ready and prepared for what he has offer, meaning they have to earn it and practice his ways. And today "perfect, unselfish love" is hard to accomplish because living in today's world is sort like "survial of the fittest" and people only put their total trust in what they see. But I think it's worth taking a chance, if it promises happiness, peace, so many other infinite possibilities and rewards.

Thanks for your support

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for posting this truth. You've summed up so much in your words. When reading it I thought of a scripture in the bible. 2 Timothy 3:1-5. It describes so perfectly the attitudes of people in the world today. Why there's no peace and why people don't desire to be good to and help others. But then there's the light at the end of the tunnel in these words:

So the question is “How do we see beauty in these painful situations and experiences
In order to provide healing, peace, and happiness?”
I believe that beauty lies within us only
And when we find it, we are able to let our beauty shine on others
And we can do all the things that our heart desire more effectively
With more heart and soul because we have an identity
We’re sure of ourselves


We all have the ability to do good...but the question is do we have the genuine desire. We are created in the image of one who is great in all way. One who loves in a way that is incomparable to anything and anyone else we know. We CAN do it - the desire just needs to be awakened in many. We can start by leading by example...even then we are limited in what we can do. Still, doing our part is important, and we await the grand fulfillment of much more and better things to come. Thanks again for sharing poet.

Poetic Love,
LadyLyric

Redcandyapple,

"The World and its People"

For those people who are in despair
Beauty and happiness seems far away
One person’s experience might not seem serious at all in another’s eye
But individuals perceive hurt and pain in various ways
Which is still felt deeply within one’s heart
Whether it is physical, emotional, or environmental


What a Wonderful and POWERFUL Piece!!!!!!!!

These are things in life that teens w/addictions face daily. I feel may be the reasons some become addicted to....... I experience seeing the pain and hurt as well as their loneliness.... Trying to assist in making them whole again.. Fighting my own tears..
Poetry was my way out from my life's pains........ I do my best to get some of the teens to express w/pen and paper instead of drugs and alcohol...

God Bless...

Give it ALL to God!!!!!
