Lost Battle Of Humanity - Poem by john chizoba vincent

LOST BATTLE OF HUMANITY

When shall sorrow and pain cease?
Many eyes have seen their eyes,
Life, a lost battle to human race.
Why deal with us in this way, knowing
That the journey is but once and you
Give us no chance to maximaze our gift.

I have travelled round but all I see is vanity,
A world where love hates love, hatred loves hatred
And man to man in holy matrimony.
Woman to woman in lesbianism, this is vanity
And chasing after the wind!

Why so much pains in little?
Soon, the chickens shall have teeth and the
Lizard will develop hair to torture humanity.
Humans has failed the universe, mankind had lost
The battle to control the world.
Lost and miserable are we in this dark forest
Where mothers leave their children naked,
And father, a kind cruel man who thinks
That a little love from him could be taken as
A sign of weakness and he will be push to the ground.

The swift never win the race nor
The man of might wins the battle,
Only grace suports us all; only grace
Single out those who are meant for grace.
Mankind has lost the battle of control over
The world, we chase after the wind.

    The poem is a terrible reminder of the condition of billions of people who live like social outcasts in the world and who are still in search of a little bit of dignity and space:
    When shall sorrow and pain cease?
    Many eyes have seen their eyes,
    Life, a lost battle to human race.
    A world where love hates love, hatred loves hatred
