KILLING IGNORANCE

KILLING IGNORANCE

A Poem by M.Babu
"

He’s an Ogre with teeth, and a deceptive smile, one too hard to be tamed!

"

I’ve hunted this beast

For a day too long,

Maybe you’ve heard of His name.

He’s an Ogre with teeth,

And a deceptive smile,

One too hard to be tamed.

 

It pains me little,

To have cornered this monster,

His destructive power is great.

He looks into

The Human mind,

And there He sets His bait.

 

Racist thoughts, Gender Inequality,

And Nepotism are His favorites.

The seeds He plants,

Blossom flourishingly,

And grow towards the Light.

Blocking the view,

With Ignorant Vines,

The Human Mind becomes

Asinine.


So I’ll stab at Ignorance,

As much as I can,

And pray that I can destroy Him.

If not, I’ll keep,

Tracking Him down,

And keep right by His Heels.

I like the goal and the purpose of this poem. Can't allow hate to control the world. Somebody must lead the way for a world peace.
"Racist thoughts, Gender Inequality,
And Nepotism are His favorites."
When someone speak with a negative view. Best to leave then alone to swim in their own hate. Also best not to trust a man who have no love for life and people. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

If words could physically hurt, you would have forged one of the strongest weapons. Well said!

You strike at the heart of that which goes by a thousand names, yet all find us in our weakness.. giving in to hate and pain... May we learn the sweeter song.. or at least the next generation perhaps.

This is great! I love how I can really feel your passion about this. It was extremely clear and the imagery was great. The first stanza was my favorite. Great job! =)
