Is this world worth saving?
Everywhere I see,
Such evil deeds,
Could this world be worth saving?

If there was but a sign
Or at least one person praying,
Would it be enough
To make this world worth saving?
In darkness all I see
Skeletons in the wind waving,
Bones clicking together
A chiming they are making
Violence is our business, and business is good
But yet a world not worth saving?
How many people needed
Holding hands praying,
Would it stop the hurting of
Those in this world worth saving?

Madness, insanity
Everywhere I look I see
Evil in totality
Even if we all knelt praying,
Could this world ever be
Worth saving?

I often ponder this thought of this world. It really is true. I like the way u made a poem out of this thought. It really makes one think even more.......(more people should read this poem)

Sometimes this world makes you wonder, doesn't it? I believe that one person would be enough to warrent saving, though. This is a very powerful, well written piece.
