A Mad, Mad World by Elizabeth Daniel


It’s a messed up world,

Guns blazing,

Bombs flashing,

Subdivisions and city streets,

Children playing hide and seek,

From parents who care more about getting high,

Strung out on the side,

It’s a messed up world,

Throwing money in the wind,

At everything except what matters most,

Kids suffer and die,

Pharmaceutical companies say the loss doesn’t outweigh the cost,

Who’s counting?

And in the thick of it all,

People seem to forget who made them,

Leaving God out of mouths,

Slapping lawsuits if he shows up in school,

Funny no one seemed to argue about it back when I was younger,

It’s a messed up world,

We’re just trying to live in it.

About the Author

From a very young age, Elizabeth knew she was meant to be a writer. Around 8 or so, she started with little poems inside birthday cards. As years went by, poetry became her safe haven in a world full of chaos and beauty. Through written words, she found her voice. A voice according to doctors, she was never supposed to have. Today at 34, she still re- reads those poems from the early days. Now housed on her bookshelf in old binders.
