Ages And The Phoenix

For ages there have been decadence,
The denudation of the life's essence;
Life is but a fight of the presence.

Dreams have built the castles of ages in air,
People let go of them in acute despair;
Of spirits people are on arrears,
Fortitude and bonanza allay their fears.

Since the dawn of civilization there have been mind's insurgence,
which is nothing but the Phoenix's resurgence!

    layers of deep thought here
    your poem inspires the phoenix in me soar above the clutter
    rise atop in the skies of purpose so pure

    A difficult topic, well dealt with, but thought you became a little trapped by the intricacy's of your own prose.Your haiku, Harsh Rain, was a delight.Last verse of Memories, was superb.

    Best wishes,

    Paul B

    yes.yes very accurate assessment of the doom that seems to be staring at us all in the face...and how very true that it is indeed man who has arranged for himself this pyre upon which shall the insurgent mind burn....shall we rise again like the phoenix? ....that remains to be seen! .///10!

    Life is continual change, You can get stuck in fear and disappointments. You do not die from a failure, only if you stop trying. If Life has knocked you down, the only way is UP.......10 I like this very much
