The Blind Society

The Blind Society

A Poem by Sugar and Spice
"

No one understands... no one cares

"
Thinly stretched skin across bones,
Hollow eyes, lost, scared, confused...
The lines that crisscross their skin,
The darkness forever chasing away the light.
This is our society, it is who we are.
The kindness only a facade,
This is a place where no one really cares.
No one cares about the young,
They've forgotten the old,
They've forgotten that scars go far beneath the surface.
As the newly dug graves keep coming,
The blind eyes keep turning,
Sitting in the cemetery, watching skin get slashed,
Watching the sky grow dark, as each day goes by.
Society doesn't want you to die.
They just don't understand.
Understand time, scars, darkness, demons...
Our society is blind.

Gripping with vivid imagery. I love where your coming from with this poem. The picture you have above your poem mirrors a profound message that's unfortunately universal for mankind in general. Regardless of what time zone your living in its apparent society abides by this present day code of conduct for some unknown reason to date. Great write. :)

The imagery is dark but I suppose that was intended. Nice write. It brushes on unfortunate truth. Thank you for sharing. :0)
