Lost Faith

Rating: 5.0

Man lost faith in fellow men;
their thoughts, acts, words and virtues!

In a world of mutual mistrust
Scepters ruled the mighty kingdoms,
idols ruled human hope and wisdom;
statutes, rules and codes etch today
vows on papers!

Words of mouth go with the wind,

and prefer we walking on jotted lines.

Sathya, this needed saying and I enjoyed the way explained the greed of man. The knowledge has been there for many centuries. Plato's Rebulic 11,372-373 'Then a slice of our neighbours land will be wanted by us for pasture and they will want a slice of ours, if like oursewlves, they exceed.......limit of necessity and give themselves up to the unlimited accumulation of wealth? That Socrates, will be inevitable. And we shall go to war, Glaucon. Shall we not? Most certainly, he replied.

The evil in the world is not the Devine's plan, but he has given Man Free Will, we must all choose which way to go. We can not lose Faith. Prayer and Faith can make Miracles. I like this poem very much, it ask everyone to think about what is happening in our World.
