    WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD TODAY? WERE ITS NORMAL TO HEAR THE NEWS REPORTER SAY....."Today in the news 24 year old women drowns her to little girls."...OR "14 yr old boy goes to school and shoots 4 people then turns gun on himself." I TELL YOU THIS WORLD NEEDS HELP!

    HELP FOR OUR MOTHERS, HELP FOR OUR BROTHERS, HELP FOR THE YOUTH, HELP TO FIND THE TRUTH

    HELP TO BECOME STRONGER, HELP TO GROW, HELP TO ADMIT YOU NEED HELP WITH EVERYTHING YOU DON'T KNOW

    WE NEED HELP TO REALIZE ,WITH OUT THE MAN ABOVE THERE IS NO SURVIVAL

    TURN YA FO INTO A FRIEND AND SQUASH THE RIVAL

    IM SICKA DA TEARS, SICKA DA FEARS, SICKA WHATS BEEN GOIN THESE PAST YEARS

    WHILE WE KEEP POINTIN OUR FINGERS AT SOMEBODY ELSE

    ITZ TIME WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER 3 POINTIN BACK AT OUR CHEST

    I don't know if any of you have heard but today in my city of Cleveland, Oh a 14 yr old boy went to school and shoot a few students and some teachers. The young man then turned the gun on himself and took his own life. They say that he was a troubled youth who was asking for help. I just wonder how many people will have to die before something is done? It saddens me to know that no one would help this boy. Not only that but the family as well. If you know someone who you think is in need of help of any kind....PLEASE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS GIVE THEM A HAND, OR AT LEAST SEND THEM TO SOME ONE WHO CAN.

    Yes, poetess, we have to look both within ourselves and at the chaos on the outside. Intense piece, thank you for this.

    As The World Turns...
    It's not by far the "World" that needs fixing, ...but the "whirl" that we live in.

    I feel you completely on this piece poet!
