A parasite of our own

A parasite of our own

A Poem by Zipho_D
"

Human kind is the end

"

A parasite of our own

What have we done? Is this all

We can ever be? We have disgraced and

Deteriorated this whole place

To it’s knees. A species without purpose

Is all we could ever be.

 

All we ever do is take and take. Show us

What you have and we’ll latch on to

You like a parasite. Mother nature

Gave us everything we could ever ask for

But look at what we gave back to her.

Nothing, we took and now she cries.

 

Are we really that parasitic? That all

We are designed for is to be hosted

And kill our host softly. This generation of

Ours is dead. Our children won’t have

A home to come to. We are the disaster

Happening without notice.

 

And the end is upon us all.

i really feel strongly about this write, Zipho...not only is it good, but it makes me think of the first settlers to this land...how we came, were greeted kindly by the Native Americans...and then beat them down and took the land...a land that for some reason we felt we owned? not really.
they knew how to live off the land but nurture it at the same time...we have not done that and now have laid so much to waste.
stirred up by this write.

This is brilliantly blunt about something that makes me want to throw up. I am so disgusted with humans & how they treat other peoples & the planet. More & more, it's all about greed. You really nailed it, but even tho your accusations are blunt & painful, there is also a background melody of smoothly running water, as in a stream, such that a reader can feel the HEART of this message is more in a loving tone (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
