Slaves in our own world
disciplined by our God
emotional scars are our birthmarks
something we endure till we die
emotions cause violence
emotions create suicide
who are we
what are we
we live then die
but a life meant to please others
the time we spemd in life
is all but lies
we cheat and steal
how is this humanity
killers take our lives
and they live to tell it
the skies get darker by the years
the water we drink isn't as clear
pictures mark the days we lived
memories that fade as we age
friends leave you for better things
things that decieve them in the end
lovers leave you for the same thing
like how Eve took the apple from the tree
decieved God
ending up banished
nothing in this world works out
everything turns rotten
turning back time doesn't change anything
only changes the future
moving around the bad times in our lives
and making it worse
so until we die, we'll be slaves in our own world

The world is a wicked place, but there is alot of good too. Don't let the bad keep you from seeing the good. Great poem!

Hi Poe_32!
We're a slaves of our desires. We can be sure to be happy always if we don't let our desires rule us.
I thought til now it was Adam who pluck the apple from the tree!!!!!

Good thoughts
