                Humanity

To seek within the shell of man,
We'll see the very hell of man.
A creature of exceptional measure,
And surely one of devious pleasure.

He swears to heaven love and peace,
From killing, he does not decease.
Aches with sorrow, repents in pain,
I do not think he's all that sane.

His end will come without surprise,
A product of his own demise.
If not by swift and blinding flash,
Then surely by pollution trash.

Each generation needs to live.
We die before we can forgive.
We multiply and justify,
To many born to mollify.

The world is sick, tired and lame.
And I for one, am part the blame.

WOW!!!
Did someone make you mad?
This is one of the most POWERFUL poems I think I`ve ever read and yet with so much truth.
Strong but very well written.
Thank you for the read Seymour.

Sy,
With a title like that, I could only imagine the content of the poem, and it turned out to be equally as potent. There is a lot of weight to these few short verses, a strong message well delivered, as always.
Love ya

Sigh, great work Seymour, no one seems to notice the world being destroyed around them, and those that do just say they cant do anything about it.

A decidedly different style for you, Seymour!

A true artist isn't afraid to break out of the mold and comfort zone.  That makes you a true artist, my friend.

Things I think of so often, Sy.

Sigh.

That's all the heart I have in me tonight - you have written this so well.

Oh dear this is a powerful message.  If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem they say.  Great poem, Sy.

We have all had this inner battle bottled up inside at one time or another and getting it out like this is the only way to deal with it and then let it go.
WONDERFUL,now I will let it go after my post challenge.
