After The Trials

After The Trials

A Poem by SammMG
"

With wrongs must eventually come a right.

"
Can you imagine the guilt we all feel
Simply on reflecting on actions of the past
An example would be in a case of wrongful conviction
And a verdict edged with fire
We will think back to Salem
A case of death permeating all for wrong cause
How men shattered the mirror of truth
So that the image was not clear to onlookers
And thus with no other mind simply rallied
How lies of heresy was weaved
Into an otherwise fabric of innocence
All for a fear of what was simply unknown
Or to feed the beast that is pride
Truth not be transparent
But rather a lens of breathtaking clarity
If not that be the case
Then let people search on their own
And choose but not be forced
To follow a man who wants dominion
In the pursuit for the true objective
History has taught us many mistakes after all
No matter the period
We all must look for understanding
Otherwise the souls around will suffer
Victims of wrong actions past
And for that we look to Salem

Sure thing!
Its true that we have destroyed the ancient culture of truthfulness because of our vested interests or, as you pointed out, pride! The poem is very relevant for today's world. And i also love the fact that you have ended the poem on a positive note, giving an advice.
All in all, a beautiful poem. I enjoyed it
