This is the other poem which I have created, with a positve mind:-)

The last one was a Mood Poem; This one is a 'I do not understand' poem

Here are the instructions for it:

A. Begin the poem with "I do not understand."
B. List three things you do not understand about the world or people
C. Name the thing you do not understand most of all.
D. End with an example of something you do understand.

Here is an example:

I do not understand
why some people must have revenge
why some people live for drugs
why others live for money.
But most of all I do not understand
why people don't believe we are running out of oil
(I still see drivers burning rubber driving well over 55 going to work alone like kings in their royal cars).
What I understand most are people who are depressed
who see a dismal future
where the world's light

Here is mine:

I do not understand
Why people are so brutal to each other
Why terrorists continue their misdeeds
Why sympathetic people are made fun of
But most of all I do not understand
Why kids kick off their parents to nursing homes, assisted living residences, senior apartments, and all those other facilities existing in this world. Why can’t they repay those back with love, who have given them the will to face the world.
What I understand most are individuals believing life to be a gift
Who see a bright future loaded with successfulness
Who follow their heart towards an implausible journey
And enhance their parent’s reputation far above the ground.

One thing which I do not like about my poem is the length of this sentence:

But most of all I do not understand
Why kids kick off their parents to nursing homes, assisted living residences, senior apartments, and all those other facilities existing in this world.

It seems a bit too long, is there any way I can shorten it out?

All your help will be appreciated, thanks
