My light in the dark!

Nothing is good!
Not one thing at all!
The right are killed all day long!
I look to my faith!
Yet its met with more hate!
I guess war is just fate!
To you I cant relate!
Life to me is infinite!
Some how like space!
What a cold day when the children dont play!
The leaders and rulers of the lands are more worried about keeping title and place!
So I wont pretend or make amends!
If God said death for our sins he was lieing then?
Even today it still happens!
Yet to lie to them is just a habit!
We have been our own problem!
Instead of care for our own we rob them!
Then blame each other to unforgiving to say to them I'm sorry!
The worst part about all this, really it's the way people choose to live!
What does all this mean to me?
Jesus is more important then that degree!
His love was just given!
That degree your offering had a fee!
Good riddance!
