Future's Death Song

Future's Death Song

A Poem by MissMisunderstood
"

A note to all the terrorists. Here's what I think.

"
You hold your weapons, firmly in your palms.
You ravage, and destroy, and have no qualms.
You injure and kill, and feel no regret.
And still you tell the world, they have seen nothing yet.

You murder the people, and you believe it is right.
You feed on destruction, and block out all light.
You don't seem to notice how many you slay.
And how others cry for them, day after day.

All people are born with goodness within.
But only evil can diminish it, with such a deadly sin.
Have you no heart at all, for inflicting this pain?
After all this bloodshed, what have you to gain?

The world is slowly dying, and so is all life. 
And you cold-blooded people, are just causing more strife.
So I hope you realize that what you're doing is wrong.
As you march on with vengeance, singing future's death song.

Hey guys. This came to me while I was reading about all the bombings going on in the world. I just got sick of all the horrible things people are doing, so I started describing the situation from my point of view. I hope you like it.

Thank you!
You definitely convey a strong message with this poem, it's extremely well written. I'm not a poetry expert, but this is one that I really liked, was able to understand well, and which resonated with me.

The only thing I'd say is maybe watch out with your commas. If you read this just as a sentence, there would be no comma: "You hold your weapons firmly in your palms." Maybe change this. If you want there to be a break between 'weapons' and 'firmly', you could even make two lines.

Hello, Miss! :)
Your poem has a lovely rhythm and rhyme.
I really liked what youre saying in these lines:
"The world is slowly dying, and so is all life. 
And you cold-blooded people, are just causing more strife."
