Blind World


We’re seeing everything with blind eyes
And judging everyone with closed eyes
We don’t realize the broken dreams
And the path that should be seen.

We listen with def ears
Move with an attitude of ‘who cares’
We say only words like ‘I’ and ‘me’
We don’t talk, we chatter.

By saying humans have become animals
Why insulting animals
Humanity is confined only in a few hearts
Is anybody sure to find an ultimate cure?

    The beautiful truth of this poem makes us humans sound as awful as we truly are. The author implies that we have lost our perspective and only focus on ourselves. We have lost what we could have accomplished and our low character is worst than animals. Animals can be excused; they do not know the truth, we know it and don't use it and that is far worse. The author says that humanity is still confined in a few hearts and it makes the reader ponder whether their heart is among the living or the dead. This poem could be more inspiring if it gave us a emery to this situation or if it had darker imagery that made us give in to despair. Good poem overall; not a great rhyme scheme but decent. I admire it because it says what the author thinks without any remorse. (Report) Reply

    Feeding Tube

    If when you’re awake you are sleeping
    I suggest the food, you stop eating
    If you’re reading clap-trap
    TV-viewing pure crap
    From a putrid breast you are feeding (Report) Reply
