Why I Am Desperate

Rating: 5.0

I am desperate
Not because my dreams remain dreams,
My gains weigh less
Or my emotions cared less
But because
What I see and hear
Lack beauty of truth
But dirty of lies and greed

Reality shatters the ideal state we wish to achieve, humans, or man in particular were once said to be nasty, brutish and short. This poem illuminates the need for compassion reason and understanding.
