Hope in the light

Silly people
To the left and to the right
whining about life with all their might
who wronged who
who was wrong and who was right.

Stupid people
In the day and in the night
Not walking through without a fight
does not matter
who was wrong and who was right

Hurting people
all within my realm of sight
Unhappy people wanting to fight
Out of their minds
Suffering from self inflicted spite

Forlorn people
who cannot see beyond their blight
who cannot see there is a light
in the hope
Of Jesus Christ and his eternal might
Of salvation and forgiveness
of all sin and anger and blight.

About this poem

Written just now off the cuff. So many people on Social Media who complain about their lives when they have so much. People who are unhappy with themselves and don't see a light at the end of the tunnel.
