Poetry’s Victory Is A Victory Of Humanity - Poem by Catherine Yen

When jealousy and assail become the vocation
The mind is occupied by prententious obstinacy
A callous ego procreates enormously
When the integrity withdraws, and hypocrite rises
The penury lead the copious
And the ignorant master the competent

When people only hear whomever wants to hear
But did not hear that he should listen
When the die-hard is in the continuous battle with his shadow
That crystal- like poet
Like Don Quijote
In his beginning of a honorable heart
Excavating the soil by hands and feet
Burgeoning the roots of all kinds
.And the wide variety of flowers
Disseminating the aroma and fruits
No self-reflection
No salvation in the truth
Award due to the person obtaining the meaning
Applause often comes from the person off the stage
When the shoulders yield the gun fire
And bullet sprouts the flowers
In between the gun fire and flowers
There is no ignorance and compromise
The poetry’s victory
Is a victory of humanity
