A Poem by Nely Amorim

since the dawn of time
and the birth of man
there are true heroes
and there are cads
seven years from now
we will face our doom
a cataclysmic fate
a world come to ruin
seas will rise, earth will fall
the suns warmth will cease
the ice will reform
a dark descent into hell
last breaths will expire
tears will track a trail
humankind will begin to fail
then courage it will inspire
the chosen few will remain
to witness God's wrath and pain
the courage will come
to those who live
to feel the pain of survivors guilt
the world in revolt will bear no fruit
the cads of the world have broken it
we dont have time for regret
we can save our planet yet
so stop the cataclysmic fate
lets break bread and discuss
how we can save our world at last.

Well put to say the least. It's brooding and terrible (in the good way) yet I'm still glad it's the first thing I read after returning to this site. It's this sort of simple writing that has more than itself to say that speaks to me. It reminds me whats so special about this place; the fact that we all have the same creative note in our souls that brings us together. I love to hear that note whenever I can because it brightens my day.

Somber words
before me lay
broken and twisted
in this new day...
Man's war against himself.

Nicely done, Mel, for Mel you shall always be to me! haha

Sounds like Armageddon in attempts to start over with humanity so that maybe we can get it right this time. It does have a prophet like feel to it. A very nice contribution indeed.

Excellent poem. Very dark and prophetic feel to it. The next word should be pretty interesting too. Glad you're getting your writing legs back. :)

Too much importance cannot be put on reversing the damage that man has done to this planet. And to think there are still a few who think it's all a "natural cycle." (They must work for oil companies) As always, yours is some fine writing.

A powerful poem to say the least. I am hoping that people will change and we will survive. Otherwise, it is good bye.
well said and written, very true.
