Distressed – A Haiku

Their heart’s hurt and bleed

Their mind’s are tortured daily

They don’t give a shit

2013 Albert Moyer, Jr.

I  read in the news this morning that a family member stabbed five people to death, four being children, and in another news story a man shot a family to death, and killed their dogs. This poem was written and inspired based on the countless distressed people I meet daily, and what they feel inside. It is a sad fact, but our society in America is becoming more and more distressed everyday.  Unfortunately, it is all because of bad parenting, lack of values, and Romans 3:18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” When you have nothing to fear, and care about nothing, it is very easy to act out, and this is what we see in America. Millions with no hope or fear acting out due to being distressed.
