Altruistic Convenience


The sound of silence is louder than …
The voices of those whom you want to invoke
No one cares about the justice call you chant
They no longer part of the system of life, it's a havoc
They are like animals, hunt and feed
All careless to the call, blinded to reach their need
Last time we marched to the sacred rights
We brought the organized anarchy, a lower height
They fear what they don't understand, and beyond comprehension
They are simply unenlightened... and vulnerable to manipulation
How to bring the mental light back for the light seared?
But no redemption throughout history and philosophy appeared
Everything is neither blurry nor clear, a misleading fate
It's just hope has gone infinite in the thin line of eight
Individual interest are our constitution and desire
But after all of that, no one agrees to look in the mirror
Because we all live a lie of prosperity and honor
While the truth reeks with failure
And when you tell the truth, they become martyr
And all what you hear after you lose your voice
And you think that we really don't have a choice
You will hear the echo of our heinous laughter
Because we think we control everything, the master
While a reason for existence is a question without answer
Take your righteous call
It's a nation meant to fall
Not because we are wrong, it's because we don't confess
That we are blind deaf and mute, and tell stories of success
It's all so hysterical, a durable and gullible tool
To make an example for the world, of a complete fool

    You have a grasp of the ignorance of those who think they are better than others,
    but in fact, are fools. You bring the truths to light, I'm learning many things from
    you through your poetry. Very enlightening thoughts. Please keep writing, will
    read more of your poetry as I am able to.
    Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
