Are We So Ignorant?

We the highest of God’s creation
we the knower of many,
the holders of the eternal flame of
knowledge.
Universe still unrolling its
sacred secrets.
is it this pride which made us blind?
so blind that no light permeates our eyes.
From the narrow depths of our heart
rose the River of hatred,
giving us an image of our dark
glamour.
Gone the time is, when we could control
its flow.
Yet hope flickers in our heart,
blooming and wilting,
reminding us of long-lost trust,
friendship,love and care.
Are we so cruel that
we cannot accept these emotions.
Shame, Shame on those
who see only themselves
every second reminding themselves
of their bulging wallet and certificates.
No Sir, no, I assure you
a lost case you are
wading in the lakes of illusion
seeing in its depth
the withered helplessness
of an ignorant life.
