Pilgrims of the dark

Pilgrims of the dark

A Poem by tanmay7551
"

Nothing new... This again speaks about Apocalypse that will arrive and atrocities of the human race on nature.

"

 

Flower of humanity is withering

Nurturing souls infested with greed

The world falling apart unseen

Innocence fading away quick

Had this not been repeated in vain?

One’s life becomes the only story alive

Rest all legendary, buried in peace.

Outcry for future generations penned down

But no hair moves in the gusty wind.

Nights are dark, visible truth

Invisible boasts of darker to be born

Stuck in pride to compete with God

Constructing ugly imitation of nature.

Morals born in egotist mind, we are but -

Pilgrims of the dark.

I've been reading many messages about this topic lately. I think everyone is hurting for the way we hurt our planet. You've expressed some ideas with much intensity here (I like that): "infested with greed" . . . "the only story alive" . . . and especially: "stuck in pride to compete with God" . . . and "constructing ugly imitation of nature. I agree with all this. It hurts to watch what humans are doing to this planet. I feel the hurt & outrage in your words. I'm not sure what you mean by this: "But no hair moves in the gusty wind."

The first three lines tells it all. If things do not change for the better only God knows what is next in store for all of us. Valentine
