The world is the world.



The world is the world.

Well for some people...


...it’s everything, every theme,

and every thought, every scheme,

beauty shades of ugly cream

this or that and what it seems

land of free that’s in their dreams

one for none but diamond rims

alone and strong on many teams

deemed, redeemed, and memed by me

torn apart too by the seams

Long ago I felt a beam

pull me up to heaven’s stream

Where is this? Now some say steam.

Where’s the love and where’s the whim?

Where’s the grace of lovely things?


What do I mean?

The world is the world.

And while we care deeply for it

As we should


The world loves but its own gain

its own story, its own name.

So be wary of shame

Uneasy, it came

The very same

For this game

can tame

Fame.

 

I worry so much when the world is the world.


Breath moves as though the world wants it gone.

Chest pounds as cynical words run on


Life is turned upside out and downside in

And so, the world is the world.

 

Like it or not

This is our lot.

Background Information:

I just thought about how complicated our world is, how unyielding, unforgiving it can be. The world can be selfish. After grappling with this for time, the only conclusion I could come up with was that the world is how it will be. We can try to change it, we may even succeed, but the world will remain the world. unfair. cruel. happy. loving. selfish. We may make it better. Someone else makes it worse. I don't mean, "Don't try or give up." I mean stop worrying about if it is this or that or this again and just live the life we steward in this world as faithfully as we can...

...for the world is the world. Like it or not.

3rd section....

However, the pit has one true ability

The ability to suck in whatever it gave out

And this the reason death comes for all

2nd comment....

Similar comparison for stones like silver (average people)

And ordinary stones (low class people)

Then, there is the other set of stones who are unlucky

Despite them being propelled from this deep pit

They never make it out

These are babies who die during labour

And some some stones get thrusted out

but lack the energy to roll down the pit's hill

These are those who can't continue their journey in life

Due to different reasons e.g accident, illnesses

Felt I should share what my view is

I consider the world a very dip pit

Everytime it shoots stones like it happens with volcanos

Some stones transform to Gold on their way out of the pit

(These are those who were born with silver spoons)

Some stones only change to Gold after getting out of the pit

(These are those who have struggled to be successful)
