This World


Krystal Jackson

This world is black 
with darkened skies 
it's filled with darkness 
and I don't know why 

This world brings me pain 
which I cannot bear 
this world is so cruel 
my heart, it tears 

This world is so mean 
to you and I 
there's demons all over 
I hope we'll get by 

This world has cruelty 
that lurks at every corner 
every person you look at 
is also a mourner 

Whether they lost some family 
friend or foe 
you never know 
just how low they'll go 

As I end this poem 
I speak to you 
stop the darkness 
before it gets to the youth.
