Mariam Taufeeq

In Ignorance

Embittered by his own creations,
Tired of all pale animations,
Man set out to conquest the world.
No fear in stride,
With peacock pride,
He lifted his head too high.
And fell off the brink of precipice.
From sudden flame and light
To darkness and cold ice.
Ah, for ignorant pride,
Is ignorant in deed.
Is ignorant in greed.
Is ignorant in whimsical wanderings.
And man is, truly is,
Too ignorant to heed
The fate of ignorant pride.

    Very nice. Man does, indeed, have a tendency towards haughty pride... but also contained within is the ability to completely transcend himself and ascend to the divine. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
