Sad World

Happiness and caring
At one time was strong
And wherever they went
Respect went along

Now happiness is slipping
Caring and respect
Walked away
Since hateful wormed in
Ruining our world today

Suicide bombers
The knife and the gun
The thieving corrupted
And all the harm done

Wish we could hear
The happiness sound
Where all is well
...With all around

A very good poem, Helen, and I agree with Ken that this is one place to keep the happiness. But you are right, the world is full of hate these days and it is very sad.
