Poetry quote

Where is the love

April 7, 2017

In today’s society you just need to show

the good part in your life and don’t show

anyone how you really feel, just be strong.

You need to do everything perfectly and

show that you have a perfect life even though

you don’t have it at all, but to be accepted

you just fake who you are.

How do you feel?


I used to only believe in the good in people

even when they disappointed me so badly

I always believed that every human being

had something good inside, but the world

has become so cruel, my feelings are so mixed.

I don’t know how I feel anymore. How could I?

I can’t understand how humans as me can be

such cruel with one another, where is the love?

Where is the good in people that I used to believe in?©

    Hi Roberta! Great thought you put out in this pithy piece, I dare say. I agree regretfully that the ‘humanity’ in man appears to be redefined through emerging ‘realities’. Even truth which used to be constant has been made relative through relativistic theories. Thanks for expressing the feeling.

    It is still present in some people. You have to find it.
