It's hard to believe that people in this world
Do so much damage to humanity
It makes me wonder, where is their sanity
Rape, murder, and destruction
Women and children getting caught up in abduction
Sex slaves and human trafficking
Love, peace, and compassion is definitely lacking
To dream of a world with no hurt or pain
People would think that I'm the one insane
I pray for those who do so much harm
Just lay down the weapons, for the world's sake

This Poems Story

I am a graduate student at Chico State University working towards a degree in coaching administration. My family has supported me through seven years of schooling. While in school as I was attending Sacramento State, I took a genocide course. It was this class that I found a vast knowledge base of hurt and pain in the world. This was my inspiration to write "Humanity." It's easy to love those who love you back. Loving those whom you don't know or who have done you wrong, will you find the love and reward.
