I Met Humanity And She Was Blind

I Met Humanity And She Was Blind short poem

Photo by martinak15

It was a normal day
As they usually always say
With fights alight,
And deaths made right
With masses arguing
And the hunger growing.
Ahh what a sight!
A perfectly normal sight!

I could just not wait
Any longer in this pouring hate,
The loud thundering noises
And silent puddles and sober voices,
So drenched in uncertainty
I knocked the doors,
The doors of humanity.
I always thought of humanity
As a woman
A beautiful woman
With a beautiful smile,
With lustrous skin
And a dimpled chin
With tender eyes
And a kind voice.

But I was surprised
Shocked to be precise
And I must say
As she opened the doors
And stood in the doorway
I let out a whimper, comprised
Of pain and sadness.
For I could see humanity
And she was old
Her nimble fingers clutched onto
The stick of Hope,
Her cataract eyes looking into
The darkness, her wrinkled skin
Dry from despair
Her feeble voice
That could hardly dare
To speak out, to plead
To end this hatred
And see what was in need.

Poor old Lady
Our humanity
I feel sorry for thee,
For dost thou know
What crimes have been committed in insanity,
As they usually always say for humanity?

Extracting the best out of the imagination.

I like the repetition of ‘and’ – This is a powerful narrative driven along by a rhyme scheme that weaves in and out of light like a car driving through building shadows! Well done.

She long poem

She Keeps a Love to Nurture her Immature And a Vigor to Sacrifice the Fruits of Nature Her Dreams are Curtained Behind the Window Panes And Chained into Darkness with Teary Stains Her Audacity of Giving Birth to our Family

An Ode For Humanity

An Ode For Humanity short poem

A marble, jostling among the congregation says: I am not so obsolete But am impelled to be desolate For, the ultimate cause of humanity Perished in its serendipity. Defiance and vengeance and malevolence Thrived in conquering this vicinity But humanity-succumbed

The Sea Soaked She And The Sun

The Sea Soaked She And The Sun ode

Away from the crowd She whispered her tale. To the cresting waves, To the frothy foam, To the flying seagulls, They knew her soul. They were waiting for her To wash her heart. She left the remains, She was carrying

We live in a world full of blindness, Everybody is looking, But yet lacking kindness, Ignorance has made us all crazy and mindless, Nobody willing to stand up Instead acting spineless, Evil has spread And started to become timeless, People

The Blind Walk

The Blind Walk long poem

Wondering through life blindly Looking for resolutions, that will certainly never come With no real direction, assurance or assistance Roaming aimlessly about through life Drifting here and there and to and fro Walking down dark hallways with no exits Stuck
