Poetic Diary 2020 - Entry 2

by the13thpoet

As I lay my head down to sleep
And hopefully face another tomorrow
It hurts my heart that this world
Is full of pain and sorrow

While the rich live their lives
Taking trips to Paris and Rome
Another child goes to sleep hungry
Another family has lost their home

While some sleep in fancy mansions
The less fortunate sleep on the street
The poor play this game of life to survive
While the rich, they play for keeps

For most this life is all too real
But some live it like a game
Focusing on all our differences
Instead of what make us the same

Why is man so quick to forget
That we're all the same at birth
Brought into this world naked and afraid
All children of mother earth


For the readers who have read my poetic diary, this is the 2020 version of the Poetic Diary which I started in 2008. As we are limited to two posts a day, I probably won't post a new entry everyday if other ideas or contests that I want to enter come up. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
