The Disease of Mankind

The Disease of Mankind

A Poem by Hopelessly Confused
"

A terrifying disease that I would surely become infected with.

"

It chooses you for no good reason.

The selection is random.

It seeps into your head,

and starts to spread.

Taking over every single inch of your body.

It's truly the incurable disease.

You can try as hard as possible to resist,

but it won't help.

Just make your life a living hell.

The only nice thing is you can share your suffering,

but only with one other person.

You just can't choose that person.

They have the power to decide whether or not the disease will beat you.

but you choose for them in return.

For me I have not been infected yet,

but when I do, I hope the disease will win.

Because it seems like life is so much better when you let love win.

That is a very cute poem and so true. Life seems so much better when you have someone to share it with. When you love someone, you can share everything with them. Suffering, pain, hope, joy, happiness. That is what I find remarkable about love. This is an amazing write up and the feelings shine through so purely. Great work.

I love this .. The way you structured the piece around the use of oxymoron's (disease - love) is very effective and powerful.. Great job!

i love the last line "For me I have not been infected yet,

but when I do, I hope the disease will win.

Because it seems like life is so much better when you let love win." this poem is really good!
