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.

thanks for the review.
It beautifully, though terribly true. Not everything is what it appears to be at first, and not everyone is who they say they are.

this rings soo true nothing is as it seems everything has a "darker side". the only problem is we often get so caught up in the fact that its not good we forget that it helps make everything into what or who it is it defines as well as enhances

That final line is a beauty … poignant yet pointed.

The world at a glance is a puzzle. Nature, full of beauty and at the other end of the coin human beings who with their egos and greed are slowly destroying our great Earth. Wonderful poem Pritesh!
