Decay Read Count : 16

Category : Poems

Sub Category : N/A

I have been so dissuaded 

By this so-called life.

Death, and violence, and misery,

Define the human plight.

Love is a concept 

As foreign as the stars,

And everyday I cover up 

All the wounds and scars.

Mankind, it would seem to me,

Defines itself through misery.

Pain and suffering 

Put prominently on display,

Emphasizing the very heart 

Of society’s decay.

Intelligence and morality 

Steadily decline,

Advances in technology 

Making it all sublime.

The concepts of right and wrong, 

Once so well defined,

And yet we find new ways 

To blur those very lines.

What bearing does this all have 

Upon our worlds fate?

I really don't know, 

But it may be too late.
