Society Today

Society Today short poem

What society are we living in
so much of evil and hating
for a female it has become an unsafe place
no more respect so much disgrace
do we need to lock ourselves up
and not show our faces or we would be torn up
by the looks, the actions or the crimes
against us without thinkng twice
we need protection and security
to calm our fears and worries
the headlines that come up everyday
how can we have let the society go astray
we only hope and pray
one day we can eradicate it all and make it go
rape is a serious crime
reputation and dignity of a woman is more
expensive than a mere dime

Society short poem

We live in a Society driven by Fear, Anger, and Greed. Fear of the unknown lurking among us. Fear of others’ distrust. Fear of what lies in our demise. Anger in our eyes for the person who leads us astray.
