I wrote this poem after reading the newspaper. This poem is about the world we live in now.

Our world has gotten bad if you look around,

People with guns and no jobs to be found.

The schools are not like they once used to be,

Armed Guards and Security is now what you see.

What happened to the days a child walked alone,

Down the sidewalk to a friends without a cell phone.

Without being approached by an unwanted stranger,

Without having to worry about any danger.

Has the times changed that much since I was young?

Staying out after dark and the songs that we sung?

We had respect for our Parents, Teachers and Others,

Got yelled at by other Parents like our own Mothers.

Yes, the times have changed and that's pretty sad,

That our once peaceful world has gotten this bad.

"- our once peaceful world has gotten bad." Yes, but it might be owing to people stop fearing God; and that's not good for the world.

“I read the news, today, Oh boy, the British army had just won the war.” [The Beatles]. You got me thinking about that time when my twin brother and I were walking home from first grade along the state highway and a kindly woman gave us a ride. My mother chided us and told us that we should not let strangers pick us up.

Because of the big brother nature of our society with the media competing for stories of sensational character to bring viewers and readers in, we think that the world is somehow less secure than it was when we were younger. The facts show that that is not the case, and all this security stuff primarily just inhibits our freedom to develop. I'm glad that I was not under the thumb of a soccer mom.

words that are so true and sad to be so

Very jolting truth to this poetic wake-up call. There are some very good things that I call "Inspirational Blessings" in a poem I wrote a week ago on AD.

May peace be with you, love be in you and blessings flow over you,

John Michael Domino
