A world stained by hate

A world stained by hate

A Poem by Rob Santana

A world filled with darkness

Where the blind lead the insane,

Remains of charred corpses

On display throughout

the cities of the damned

We all have been stained by hate,

Embrace mankinds history

That has been written in blood

Repaying the favour for reviewing one of mine!

I love this, despite it being so short. "Where the blind leave the insane" is awesome. Possibly reminiscent of certain governments right now? Final two lines are so utterly true. Definitely adding this to my library.

poignant and true! humanity's reality summed up in eight lines. I often ask myself are we doomed or is there hope in the distant future?
very nicely penned.

Well thank you very much Afraa, haha.
At every point in history we meet a chapter of the insane leading the blind.. turmoil and disaster don't fall far behind. Your poem recites the passage of history to its complete terrifying truth that we are a species living in a world of darkness and we never really wanted to turn on the light. This is why I take you as a brother, your poetry is just raw and honest and you never let the demons hide in the background.

In a post apocalyptic world, I hope to see that written on a sign to the entrance of destroyed Los Angeles.

Damn that would be a sight to see. I would admire that right before my head was blown clean off.
This is short but tells the sad truth! I really liked this one.
This poem contains a vivid imaginary style.
tells how friendly the world looks. But the truth is bitter. We all are full of hatred.
Bloodshed everywhere.

World painted in blood. It's depressing. Glad you liked this piece.
You have a great style! This was the other one I wanted to read so bad. The truth in this is so tangible and real, it makes it seem funny when you step outside in the morning and the world seems bright and friendly. Nope, not the case!
