Is This the World We Created?

Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed.
Take a look at all the suffering we breed.
So many lonely faces scattered all around
searching for what they need.

Is this the world we created?
What did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded
against the law?
So it seems in the end
is this what we're all living for today
the world that we created.

You know that everyday a helpless child is born.
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home.
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
waiting for life to go by.

Is this the world we created?
We made it all our own.
Is this the world we devastated right to the bone?
If there's a God in the sky looking down
what can he think of what we've done
to the world that he created.

Written in 1984 by Freddie Mercury. 36 years on and these words are more poignant than ever...
God bless you Freddie. You sang from the heart and now you rest among the angels ❤

we never created it, it formed slowly over time by the laws of physics just like everything else, and nature doesn't live up to idealism

That's not the meaning of the words. The meaning is that we've created the world we live in today of poverty and disease and destruction.
