The State of World

All people now seem to crave success,
Though this road may be one of stress.
And so many try to be perfect,
Knowing success brings respect.

We all appear to be in competition
To get more money and more recognition.
So why do some have an endless need
To fulfil a constant greed?

So away with envy and with hate,            
For we now have bigger things upon our plate.
The world now needs to stand as one,
Until the Covid has completely gone.

Now is the time to share and give.
And must be a better way to live?
So keep walking upon this path, 
And hope that this shall always last.

What a good poem as you pose some interesting questions. The need to prove oneself or to be highly competitive might stem from some inadequacy. Stress is certainly a product of this behaviour. The final stanza of your poem suggests that the pandemic might result in a change of attitudes and values. Let's hope so.

Thank you for this
