The Failure of the World

Why is the world filled with so much hate? 

Everyday it's something different. 

- some teenager's getting raped

- drugs

- alcohol

- gangs 

- a white man killing an innocent black teenage boy, and is not guilty

- depression leading to suicide

- economy failure

All of these problems, derived from hate. Everything is just too much for me to take.

Here goes this one, and then that one.

What happened to, "we shall overcome?" 

Will this be fixed, and will that problem be solved? 

Will we ever live with just love & no hate at all? 

Man, what has the world come to? 

I just dont know how to fix it, and I'm sure neither do you.. 

but where do we start?
