A Poem by The dark story

The Answer

 

Exuberant on the firmament’s bed

The silhouettes of decayed sunlight

The foul breeze wandering like dead

Fizzling malediction on the plight.

 

Embraced in deluge scarlet streams

The san verdant soil, lay repose, stinking

En bloc lay still and silence screams

Save the inhumane flame revelling.

 

He sowed ruinous seeds of sin

Nurtured the heinous thirst’s soul

The savage forest’s killed our kin

Its roots twisting humans’ soul.

 

What were we

and what are we now?

Being evolved from ape

Now are we evolving into another beast’s claw?

Author's Note

The dark story
from stones and sticks to swords and spears, and then to rifles and tanks, and from there to atom and nuclear bomb. sounds so weird that we have "worked hard" so much on making devastating weapons rather than finding a path for a peaceful world.

There are many reason why powerful people create such destructive weapons, but i think there are two main reasonable enough reasons for it, one is to protect their matter of interest, second perhaps to protect themselves for the coming of invasion. That's just what i thought, though i don't have real basis on it... your words is a seeker for peace, but on how diverse our culture are... its hard to find the right answer on which is just right or just too much... Many people used abused their power at hand... that is why war history keeps on repeating its bad karma... the news is quite a scare now a days... war is just a door step away into becoming global again... an eye opening piece my friend... well expressed...

"Being evolved from ape

I have been studying about history all my life. Man have been fighting forever. Photos gave strength to the poem. World hadn't changed in 5000 years. The bad part today is. Weapons are more dangerous and will kill whole cities in seconds. That should scare us to death. Thank you for the amazing poem. Open the door to a very long conversation with a sad ending.

A very powerful write on the sad condition of our human history that is full of wars , mayhem , destruction , injustices , arrogance and so forth. I like the powerful ending that says we have evolved into a beast kind of creature. Strong imagery...Pen on...:)

Hmm, very interesting concept, though I can't quite grasp it fully. Are you referring to mankind? As the last stanza is the most concert one; however, the abstract feel to the others is rather nice as well. I liked the short descriptions the choice of words seemed to create and the rhymes were pretty good overall.
