I hate these days of madness yielding
that finds the world with daggers wielding
and leaves me here amidst it all.
to watch as it around me falls.

And in this chaos of no end
my mind I know I cant defend
a victim of the social clashes
lies lifeless in the ageless ashes.

I must tell you again, Kevin, that I find your depths to be very unusual for one so young.  I love this, and especially the last line - wow - it stuns me with its truth in a glaring spotlight of beautiful poetry.  That last line is one of those rare ones I find, that I wish I had written.  Thank you for sharing this one.

Wonderfully done, Kevin!  It's nice to know I'm not the only old soul out there.  I've felt like this many times in my life, and you portray it with stunning accuracy.  You have true talent.

"Madness yielding," "Ageless ashes"--I love it!  You have such a gift with phrasing!

Another good one!  Simple, to the point, and eloquent.  Lovely.

You often hit with a brand new perspective on things. Most people would think to defend their bodies. You say you cannot defend your mind. How well spoken, young man
