I don't understand

I do not understand
Why there is racism
Why people commit hate crimes
Why innocent people die
But most of all, I do not understand
Why people are proud of hurting or killing someone
Because their skin color, culture, and race are different
What i understand the most, is the ocean
Beautiful waves that relax and calm you down
It gives warning of a storm
Ripping its way through the ocean
By sending an army of harsh waves
The ocean in civilized and welcoming...
Are we?

Sad and Happy

Sadness crashed into my life
Like a tornado with no warning
When Christmas rolls around
And my whole family isn't there
Sadness works its way deep into my thoughts
Like a bitter piece if sugarless candy seeping into my tongue
When memories of what little I can remember from the divorce
Creep into my dreams, stealing my relaxation
And turning it into a restless night
But I have to keep in mind, happiness is just a smile away
And with that smile, my life becomes joyous again

I'm Tired

I'm tired
Not i went to sleep at 2: 00 am and had to wake up early
Not like dozing off in class
Not tired like I need more sleep
But tired of bloody wars and useless fighting
Of seeing poor, starving children who look like very fragile twigs
Of those people who are victims of hate crimes beacuse they are
different
Of hearing about children plagued my bruises from abuse
Of racism that is still and probably will always be devouring the world
I'm especially tired because I can't do much to help it all
