This Wide World

Is this wide world a better place,

or have I made it worse?

Is my life something God can bless -

or is it just a curse?

---

Frustrated, I so often am

when I help those in need -

because when they have turned on me -

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Frustrated, I so often am

when I see thieves succeed -

and politicians turn blind eye.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Frustrated, I so often am

when I see Christian seed -

'hawking' books or their CDs..

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Frustrated, I so often am

when I see drugs and 'weed' -

killing off our naive youth.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Frustrated, I so often am

when enemies are freed -

only to come kill again.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Frustrated, I so often am

when no one cares to lead -

like Moses, the great prophet did.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

No, everyone just seems to roam

where profits feed their greed -

instead to where downtrodden are.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

 

Who sacrificed Himself for this!?

Did our Lord have to bleed?

I pray today we're one with Christ.

I'm hurt, so much, indeed.

---

Is this wide world a better place,

or have I made it worse?

Is my life something God can bless -

or is it just a curse?
