Poem: Look Around You

By Alon Calinao Dy: Please comment.


Look around you, what do you see?
The mass murders in Syria,
The nuclear threats in North Korea,
Do you think the world will live in peace?

Look around you, what do you see?
The disastrous typhoons in Manila,
The huge earthquakes in China,
Do you think the world will be able to survive?

Look around you, what do you see?
The bombings in Boston Marathon
After the horrifying events of 9/11,
Do you think it's the last explosion?

Look around you, what do you see?
Do you see your brother as an enemy?
Why can't you bow your head
And together we pray?

Look around you and look very clear,
Can you justify killing innocent children?
When will these terrorist attacks end?
The world needs now clean and fresh air.

Look around you, what do you see?
The world needs a guiding light in the dark
To better be able to fight every evil mark
In chaos, the world needs to be free.

In tragic times,
Forget about all the differences
The world needs peace and love for everyone
And these needs need to be done.
