Arrows Against Humanity

Arrows Against Humanity

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

In collaboration with Nickdykstra....

"
Arrows of brutality attack our fragile society, 
From the negativity it has caused a tragedy. 

Life is precious and desperate so tread lightly, 
Many have been struck by arrows of insanity.  

Created by man the arrow is designed purposely, 
Deflecting these arrows can be catastrophe.  

In order to maintain our sanity, 
We need to fight to bring out the positivity. 
 
For it's also a mankind's gift 
To spread discord and enmity 

Arrows of brutality attack us, 
coming ever so near of ripping our hearts apart. 

What is the purpose, one may ask  
Except to render them incapable of humility.

Life is precious and desperate, so tread ever so slightly. 
Hear the anxious cries of dying humanity...

What a fine cohesive collaboration, full of sane references and a calm summation of facts and emotions.

Your poem whispers what's been screamed for years. Warnings, advice, pleas, and so forth have rarely if ever worked for more than a breath. The Flood didn't alter Civilisation's fiercely uncivilised behaviour. Seems only self-destruction will. But nobody will remain to record the aftermath.. such is humanity's evil. Perhaps.

I hate those arrows of life but, I'd rather have them than the bullets, lol. Some profound things to think about here.

I really like how this turned out. It speaks of the arrow of brutality, yet leaves it to the readers personal viewpoint to fill in those blanks, which all boil down to the same thing, for too long we have followed the path of greed, which only has one task, to hold others back so the few get ahead. Nicely captured.

Yes me too 😊
Man has worked ever so hard to evolve the 'arrow' into something more destructive. The agony man inflicts on man, the sanity plundered by the serpents of all different kinds of madness- humanity cry, but holds on strong to fight it back to see the next morning sunshine. Despair isn't an option.
This is a wonderful piece, echoing the silent screams around us. Thanks for sharing.
