About the Poem

This poem is about how we, as a society, constantly destroy what makes us live, how we break down the world a little more everyday. we are always looking for answers to why we exist.

The Earth's Enemies

This world can be so cruel -
Go the wrong way, and look like a fool.
Some things, so hard to understand,
Ugly occurrences in such a beautiful land.

We destroy ourselves every single day,
Destroying our world, destroying our way.
We go through life feeling almost blind,
Such a long travel, often nothing to find.

Some become no one, some become great,
Some with such love, some have anger and hate.
How can we be so different, and also the same?
We all have secrets of tragedy and shame.

Our reason for life seems so dense.
We search for answers so we can make sense.
If we're all here for a reason, we want to know why,
Something we may never know, before we die.

If the world actually revolved for you and me,
How would we know, shouldn't we see?

Have been a fan since 1989. Ms. King continues to stir introspection from this reader. Well done, Marcy.
so true.
This poem is great, ive been thinking the same thing without words.
Written so beautifly and so true. Unfortunitely our world has become a sad place, full of tragedies and faith. Maybe, if people would start thinking, we still could chage it and make a difference.
