In the media stories of evil abound
And cause infernal despair
But there are many other stories
Not shown
They are hidden in the chaos
Like buried treasure
in our backyards
Containing no gold
Only a shining light
To make us aglow
Hope is very much alive
I hear its heart pounding
When someone restores my faith
In humanity
And I see hope blooming like orchids
Among thistles
When I am touched by kindness
I used to see only weeds
Because I was looking through
the narrow scope of CNN
Now that I look with my own eyes
The entire picture is visible
And it is beautiful

Very true. Clear writting. It is sad that media usually only covers the negative. I enjoyed this.

Where are you looking?
This one makes an important point. If one continually follows the news media, he is eventually going to become convinced that the violence, fear and discord seen there is the only truth. In actuality, decency and good will can be found anywhere, if you are alert to them. Possibly limiting media to the basic necessities of being informed is the best course. Good message here.
