Humanity Is At Stake - Poem by Amitava Sur

This earth is not safe anymore,
Here human cannot stay.
Where cruelty and enmity are
Dominating day by day.

Man rapes, nature erupts
Tornado, typhoon and this globe warms.
With the excuse of politics and religions
Humanity is at stake! !

Bloodshed are occurring
More and more now -
Vietnam, Gaza, Ghana or Iraq
Everywhere is the same.

Whom we believe and call Almighty
He also has closed His eyes -
As if He has abandoned us
This earth has gone astray! !

This earth is not safe anymore,
Humanity is at stake! !

    You have a way of making the obvious stand out and actually be seen directly, Amitava. Man has certainly taken us into the cisterns of hell, cruelty abounding, hatred, greed, war, all around the world. Yes, even God seems to have abandoned us on earth. There is no corner for us to go to, it is no longer safe anywhere, humanity is on the edge of extinction, unless we start uniting and fighting for justice and a righteous cause for everyone. Fantastic poem, Amitava! ! Your intensity overwhelms me at times, but it is a message that needs to be conveyed and you are doing a superb job of doing it! Thank you for sharing your views, Amitava.

    A great poem, it is down to the greed of man
    why the world is like it is, only man can change
    the destruction he has caused.

    With rampant cruelty, bloodshed and misdeeds on the rise, any one is apt to wonder if our world is going to the dogs! A powerful write! (Report) Reply

    Yes anarchy reigns everywhere as if other than human beings there are no other beings that we can turn to for
    assuaging our griefs- - - a perfect piece in the context of today's chaos
