Poetry:Drowning Humanity

Drowning Humanity

With a fresh rash of suicides, one wonders if it is our whole humanity drowning...

Sinking further down


Way down deep


Desperately treading


Not there to keep


Swallowing water


It fills my lungs


The pain is hot


Can’t see the sun


Further down I go


I scream out loud


No one here to save me


Death watched by crowds


Drowning in hate


Compassion dies too


You could have saved me


But you are you


Empty eyes stare on


Feeling no cold


Your heartless inside


I don’t need to be told


Breathing hard


Accepting One’s fate


Finally peace is found


On this very date


Sanity is useless


Humanity gone


No more hope


It’s been too long


Left here to suffer


Abandoned to die


With truth brings clarity


Refuse your lies


It is over


We have failed the test


No chance of redemptions


Our soul’s won’t rest

I write what I feel and inspiration hits hardest with strong emotions, I hope you can find beauty in darkness as well as light. The sun is brightest following shadows.

Hi Kailyan. You sound a little like Virginia Wolf, Sylvia Plath. Poetry doesn't have to be gloomy, and please remember, there are always those who care for you.
