Poverty Poems: 8 / 500

At Cross Road

Rating: 4.8

Never but at cross road,
Are we at cross road?
Is there any load?
Why not we meet?
Even at cross road.

Are we blood thirsty?
And care for no one,
who may come but none?
Doesn’t concern everyone?
Even at cross road.


Can we not share?
Misery and poverty,
happiness and unhappiness,
hunger and roofless human,
even at cross road.

Why do we cut?
Burn the green forest,
and big trees,
do we want disaster?
Even at cross road.

Rain is scarce,
food also less,
nature is finished,
no bloom for ever,
even at cross road.

Why do we cut throat?
Merely for greed,
does the religion preach?
Priests or heads just teach
Even at cross road.

I may not survive,
peace may not revive,
nobody will also survive,
we will soon be extinct,
even at cross road.

Time is running out,
Still human race is not out,
We may still be in,
Kindness may be over,
Even at cross road,

Life is worth to live in,
forget not but just be in,
embrace but not embarrass them,
help but not reject them
Even at cross road.

We May still not adopt,
remain at large but not still opt,
is the nature so cruel?
Kill and get also killed?
Even at cross road

Do you think this trash you are putting up is poetry! ! There is no rhyme, no reason to your words Grammatically wrong at many places You cut a very sorry figure I would advise you to stop torturing others with this stupid write-ups

A meaningful poem., a message for billions who could get rid of uncalled hate, that may burn them alive. Wish they could learn the joys of love and friendship, cooperation and collaboration in fighting the poverty and could jointly work for welfare of humans!
