This Wide World 7-23-15


Is this wide world a better place,
or have I made it worse?
Is my life something God can bless -
or is it just a curse?
---
Frustrated, I so often am
when I help those in need -
because when they have turned on me -
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Frustrated, I so often am
when I see thieves succeed -
and politicians turn blind eye.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Frustrated, I so often am
when I see Christian seed -
'hawking' books or their CDs..
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Frustrated, I so often am
when I see drugs and 'weed' -
killing off our naive youth.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Frustrated, I so often am
when enemies are freed -
only to come kill again.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Frustrated, I so often am
when no one cares to lead -
like Moses, the great prophet did.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

No, everyone just seems to roam
where profits feed their greed -
instead to where downtrodden are.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Who sacrificed Himself for this!?
Did our Lord have to bleed?
I pray today we're one with Christ.
I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

Is this wide world a better place,
or have I made it worse?
Is my life something God can bless -
or is it just a curse?
