Man

Man

A Poem by Emo_Catrina

Through the wretched haze, there lies a luminous nature.
Others may see death, while I see new life.
Often taken for granted,
Few will appreciate what is left of these woods.
Man made filth, as far as the eye can see, overtaking what is not ours to keep.

Author's Note

Emo_Catrina
I'm not really sure how to add a photo in the text, so I how you can see the one I have for this poem, I took it myself.

I have a serious question for anyone and everyone who reads and reviews this.
Do you support (or just don't have an opinion), the lgbt community? If you do, and if you have an understanding on the sexualities, message me. I'm in a situation that I need to talk to someone about how my boyfriend feels on this.

Indeed you capture the brutality man shows to the earth, the disrespect and the short sightedness that causes the planet to die slowly in our hands. This is a well structured and articulated and simple free verse.

It is a nice poem. Thanks for sharing.

As far as for the LGBT community, I am silent here. I think, even though if someone does not support it, he or she should not talk about that cause with the opinion comes the reason. I specially can not judge others when i am not in that situation.

Mankind is willing to make long term commitments and set future goals but never seems able to see past his face.
I love the photo you selected for this poem. Maybe someday we will remember our earth is part of our community.

This is how I feel whenever I see a creek full of trash or dead zones in the ocean. I haven't read anything like this in a while and forgot how much I missed it.

STUNNING PHOTO! I can't post photos within my writing on this website. I can see your photo fine by clicking to enlarge. Your message is startlingly unusual, which to me is a major strength. It reminds me of how humans destroy nature, but then nature will easily take over a place that humans once "tamed". I wonder if the word "man" might be better as "human" since I do not catch any gender significance? Just a thought. Humans think we are masters of the planet, but nature really is & that's what I get from your poem. As for your question about LGBTQ concerns . . . I support all people & I believe it's not enuf to just be OK with people, but I encourage embracing other people who make different life choices, try to understand their choices & feel the satisfaction of living in alignment with how we are created. You can message me if you want to talk further (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I admire your optimism in seeing new life amidst the destruction. There are vast areas in Canada where you can drive along a heavily treed road, verdant and lush, but if you park and step through the ten-foot deep band of trees you will see a clearcut wasteland os stumps that goes on as far as the eye can see. This is the way the big lumber companies operate. They do replant, but the land takes many, many years to recover. So sad!
Man's destructive is long established; Britain was once heavily forested, but those forests were cleared back in medieval times, long before the Industrial Revolution. Don't expect things to change any time soon. Governments are much better at talking about it than they are at doing anything about it!
You definitely got your point across!

There is an underlying duality to these words that I quite like. On the one hand it could be about Man's destructive nature and on the other it may well be a message to look beyond the outer covering and see what lies beneath, whether in nature, in writing, or within ourselves. It is true that few appreciate what they have until it's gone.

A good write, Cat.
