I Have To Face The Facts


There Are Some Bad People In The World

They have one purpose in life

To be mean


I am here to find out

Because all they care about is themselves

Anyone in theire path they will hurt or harm

These people are not to be taken lightly

I don't think these people can change

Why would they ?

They are not to be trusted

I am not sure how many people are like this in the world

All I know

Is if I encounter one

I will do everything in my power

To stay away

Who knows if it was from a bad childhood?

How could any innocent baby

Turn out to be tober so rotten

Experts study these types of people and come up with all kinds of facts and statistics

That can back their opinions

I know there is not enough time in my life

To worry about their lives

I am more concerned about all the innocent people affected

Not just today but every day of their lives

lunaticdiaries I can't understand how people can hurt animals let alone people. I feel sorry for them. How can they be so mean without a conscientious? Some people say it is a chemical imbalance in their brain that they can not help. Either way, I want to keep as far away as possible. I am so happy to live the life I have with friends like you that have morals and values. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope you got to spend some time with your son on his school vacation.

It is because there are such people in this world that I am reluctant to venture far from home and usually stay put. Going for walks I am often apprehensive of going into stores but lately, everything and everyone here in my world have been calm and peaceful. Hope you have an inspirational new week.

Very true DreamOn, people can seem so out of control & such despicable beings, most times I don’t want to use the word human. I try really hard each day to mind my own business, keep my eye on my own goals & thank God when we all get home safely. Great writing, your point was felt.

Audrey Hunt Life is a wonderful challenge. Most people I have met in my life have inspired and motivated me to do good. There are some people that really scare me and they are not to be messed with. What little time I have interacted with them I have felt from bad to awful. A sadness I can't even explain. Thank you for all your nice comments and your support. Have an amazing day.

Kathryn Life is very short. If we go in the wrong direction we can lose valuable years of our life and our future can be glim. I keep revaluating my position and my thoughts to concentrate on the best of the best. Here even if I don't become the very best I can be in the top billion. Bringing beautiful ideas to wonderful people. Enjoying all the love people have and want to share. The world is made up of 7.53 billion in 2017. If we try to tap into the world of good. Maybe the world would have some amazing changes that we could all benefit from. Thank you so much for commenting. Have a good afternoon.

John Hansen I found as much it concerns me it is sometimes better not to get involved with these people because they can bring you down and get you involved to the bad side of life. Instead, I can keep my distance and explore my thoughts and pass them on to someone who is better qualified to deal will with all these tough situations and problems. For the longest time, I thought I could make the difference. My optimistic views and creative energies could change their future. Only recently I realized if they don't want to change they won't. All my energy and time would be wasted. No matter what you concentrate your efforts on I still believe you can take that focus and help people. I could better use my energy and efforts helping those people stay on the right path and enjoy all the fruits of life. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Every comment is one more step of change. Change happens in the mind with thoughts with mental action and later followed by physical action. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Your poem echoes my very thoughts as I'm sure it does many others. How and why are questions that invade my mind regularly?

A very thought-provoking poem. Thanks, my friend.

It is fascinating and disturbing to figure out or reflect on what went wrong with certain people, and how they can hurt or harm people. I tend to stay away from those types as well. I certainly can't fix them

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on February 23, 2019:

Dream On, the sad reality is that there are a lot of nasty self-obsessed people in the world who are best avoided if possible. Nothing seems to change their attitude. Hopefully though there are more kind and caring people on the world though, to outweigh their nastiness.
