** Stop Killing Your Own **

Twinkling stars reflection
On the blue ocean
Have become the nuts and bolts
Of vessels plying their way to destination
Bright colorful lightning
Unwittingly exhaling
The breath of infinite horizon
Giving a sensible life to boredom
Orchestra of thunders astonishingly unleash
The music of Mozart and Beethoven
Bullying the weakened hearts to a standstill
The crews and the captain were stunned
In the middle of nowhere
They’ve witnessed the rhythm of enormous blue waters
The sparkling of bluer space above
Ransacking their minds in believing
Shouldn’t the world be as calm as these?
There’s life everywhere
The planktons and corals
And Nemos were dancing
Harmoniously in the crystal clear waters
Attracting billions other species of the sea
Maneuvering the vastness of living
Beauties of dry land
Is no match to the lucrative wet world?
Mankind is brighter
Killing each other were no better
We‘re killing our own
Send them to the ocean
To appreciate the creation
How I wish they were there

    When you mentioned in your poem, Nemo, are you referring to the cartoon character finding Nemo?

    Your poems are beautiful. Thanks for pointing me to them. I wish we could come up with a poem that could take the hate out of this world. Maybe we could just dunk the whole world in a bottle of fabric softner.

    the message here is not lost on me - it is your heartfelt wish, as true of many, and using the blue ocean as a balance to the world of men is a great prop. keep keep keep writing dear friend.

    Terrific imagery, and well written. But you might want to check out some of your usage (e.g., 'breath' instead of 'breathe') , as I've noticed some recurring common mistakes. Still, nicely done...

    That was incredibly vivid and descriptive in ways hard to describe. I'll just give it a 10 and leave it at that. Awesome work!

    They’ve witnessed the rhythm of enormous blue waters
    The sparkling of bluer space above
    Ransacking their minds in believing
    Shouldn’t the world be as calm as these?
    There’s life everywhere
    The planktons and corals
    They’ve witnessed the rhythm of enormous blue waters
    The sparkling of bluer space above
    Ransacking their minds in believing
    Shouldn’t the world be as calm as these?
    There’s life everywhere
    The planktons and corals
    They’ve witnessed the rhythm of enormous blue waters
    The sparkling of bluer space above
    Ransacking their minds in believing
    Shouldn’t the world be as calm as these?
    There’s life everywhere
    The planktons and corals

    the poet makes a gild of real
