In Despair...

In Despair

I watch the world in despair,
Nothing good being done,
Chaos stopped by no one,
To bring the light out of darkness,

I watch the world in despair,
Rivers of blood flow,
Nowhere peaceful to go,
To break free of this hopelessness,

I watch the world in despair,
Explosions occur left and right,
Innocents struggle, a losing fight,
To change this state of distress,

I watch the world in despair,
As people kill their own,
They prefer staying alone,
Submerged in selfish happiness,

I watch the world in despair,
The sinless are imprisoned,
People of color shunned,
To live a life of sadness,

I watch the world in despair,
Waiting for change in state,
Let it be, before its too late,
To pull us out of this abyss,

I watch the world in despair... ,

Small Explanation - "In Despair" describes the emotion of a person torn apart by worrying for the world. In this world there are many nations, and each have their own problems, some places people of color are shunned(out-casted), while in other places mass murders occur, and if problems of large scale were not enough, the person also worries about the general vices a person faces like betrayal, injustice, murder(for wealth), etc.

It is a fact that the world as a whole is definitely going downhill. He feels there is no place where peace exists ("nowhere peaceful to go"). All the person can do is helplessly watch the world in despair.
