World at glance

A Poem by Pritesh

Its to characterize the deceptive nature of our world which we all often ignore.I hope you'll like it.

World at a glance,
seems to be a place of heavenly great,
but is not more than a human grate.

World at a glance,
seems to be full of natural treasure,
but is not more than manly leisure.

World at a glance,
seems to be full of extravagant proclaimers,
but none hears the needy which clamours.

World at glance,
seems to be full of people great and rich,
but none bothers agony of poor fighting hungry witch.

World at a glance,
seems to be full of sages and people of virtue,
but do they really preach the people with knowledge true?

World at a glance,
seems to be full of prudent vision and ambition,
but what about the embattled world with fragmented religon.

It's impressive how you've shown two opposite sides to the points made in each stanza. A reader might find that there is a cruel tone to the narrator's voice. But, the fog is actually being lifted here. The subject is connected to politics, sociology, religion and philosophy which counts as a lot. There is always an inequality resting in every society and every nation. I am glad that you have remarkable awareness of it. Though it is is of very serious content, it is enlightening and beautiful with full of morals in it. It also makes me think whether you're implying the role of the world media.

Amen! To me, your poem expresses the true nature of the world of mankind. And, of course, we each have our own point of view. The true state of the world is unknown to individuals because we interpret what we see in our own way. Anyway, it's an interesting poem.

It's true that nothing is as it appears to be and yet it is exactly how it looks. Though you can't have one extreme without the other, it's a shame the spotlight is on the 'LookAtMe's of this world. Thought provoking write.

I wish our politicians would read this and have some guilt placed before their empty promises..I live in the U.S. and it's an election year."full of sages and people of virtue,
but do they really preach the people with knowledge true? "..This should be placed upon all the election speech advertisements as a disclaimer.

Very beautiful choice of words. Breaking deceptions and false statements is a gutsy thing to do in a poem and I like that, love it!

I am of the common species of teenagers that rarely has a single trait uncommon, but the only thing that I hold distinct is perception.I deem, to have a unique perspective is to personify one's charac.. more..
