Mankind's Greatest Failure - Poem by Eric Cockrell

human failures...
war, poverty, hunger,
inequality, injustice,
enslavement, loss.....

and war leads to all of these.

greed, power, abuse,
apathy, fear, lies....
all cause war!

inability to communicate,
prejudice, righteous fervor...
allow wars to continue...

war!
mankind's greatest failure!

    This I definitely agree with this poem.
    Though I do believe that sometimes it unavoidable due human nature.
    It easy to fight, but so hard to make peace. (Report) Reply
