What has happened to our world
that there are so many cutters?
People whose suffering is so intense
that their sole relief ins watching blood
ooze out of their own body

What has happened to our world
that there are so many anorexics and bulimics?
People who yearn desperately
to fit in and feel loved
that they will endure any amount of pain

What has happened to our world
that so many people commit suicide?
People are devoured by a feeling of hopelessness
and they become blind to anything
other than escaping their pain

What has happened to our world
that kids bring guns to school?
People prey n each other like animals
tormenting some one until life is unbearable for them
and they can only release their anger through violence

What has happened to our world
that so many people turn to drugs an alcohol?
People are so engulfed in their pain
that they disregard the dangers and warnings
because all can think of feeling free

Dear God
What has happened to our world?
