MAN'S BEST FRIEND
 

Man’s Best Friend

I stood with my eyes towards the sky

And I ask my God the reason why

Why are sufferings so rampant on this earth?

Is this all that life is worth?

Some will live and some will die

But we watch helplessly while our children cry?

Will you will ever intervene? I asked my God

But the answer is in my heart and it’s very sad

He has given us the authority to care for ourselves

But we have become greedy and we care for no one else

There is enough food on this earth to share for everyone

But for his own selfishness, man has dominated man.

Now it’s time for everyone to see

The pain, the heartache and the misery

When will this ever end?

When will man be man’s best friend?

I love the end and final idea you present.

Touching yet so true. It pains me also to see and hear some things that we do to each other. My prayers are with you all.

This is a very honest and beautiful poem. It is so sad that we can't be nice to one another. The world would be such a better place if we would all just take care of each other.
