Folly Of Men - Poem by Kobik William

I am sitting at my window pane,
People are running and not in pain

I am watching men revere rain
And forgetting the One with the rein

These men cherish the love of men
And growing the tree of sin and don't learn.

But they still pray to be worthy of eternity.
God's disappointment in this entity

Shall not trigger my surprise.
That I rue being a son of this race, not so wise

I wish I lived in erstwhile times
Like I wish eschewing living in these times

When the folly of men will pull down the world's walls
In blizzards of wars,

Firestorms and sandstorms of dread
While men feed on kindred flesh as extinction faces bread

In pale sheets, on the way to dust,
They will still covet perishable moments like of lust

Since eternity in their eyes is subservient to their fate as shadows
While herculean transgressions pile like an avalanche of meadows.

    kobik, i think that you are reaching too far for the sole purpose of making rhymmes. not a bad goal, but they are too inevitable, predictable. other than that, i like the poem folly of men. i ask the question, if they are so much in chaos and uncertainty, why then in your opening it proclaims they are in no pain. that implies they are sociopaths; sinning in monumental volume and feeling not a twinge of pain. this implies that gay men are unfeeling hedonists just out for an orgasm, pretty shallow. don't know if that is what you meant or not. keep it up kobik (Report) Reply
