Humanity Is At Stake

This earth is not safe anymore,
Here human cannot stay.
Where cruelty and enmity are
Dominating day by day.

Man rapes, nature erupts
Tornado, typhoon and this globe warms.
With the excuse of politics and religions
Humanity is at stake! !

Bloodshed are occurring
More and more now -
Vietnam, Gaza, Ghana or Iraq
Everywhere is the same.

Whom we believe and call Almighty
He also has closed His eyes -
As if He has abandoned us
This earth has gone astray! !

This earth is not safe anymore,
Humanity is at stake! !

    A great poem, it is down to the greed of man
    why the world is like it is, only man can change
    the destruction he has caused. (Report) Reply

    It is the poets responsibility to report what could happen to humanity
    To warn and educate what could happen if mankind continues on it's path of destruction. (Report) Reply

    Yes anarchy reigns everywhere as if other than human beings there are no other beings that we can turn to for
    assuaging our griefs- - - a perfect piece in the context of today's chaos (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
