Poetry: Verbally Crucified

A look at what we are doing to each other, our fellow man.


It is mob mentality

No individual thoughts

Don’t think for yourself

Only what you are taught

We no longer crucify

Not in the physical sense

But verbally, mentally

Immediately forth hence

Every word a dagger

A nail, a stick, a stone

Take pleasure in your grandeur

Just leave others alone

Media, critics, writers

Don’t compare to public comments

Hateful spewing anger

It just doesn’t make any sense

No love for one another

Homeless are not humane

Can’t you see they’re hurting

Can’t you feel their pain?

Babies are dying

In their own school

Use the circumstance

For more votes and rules

A mother dies so far away

From her kids and home

What does society think

Well she shouldn’t have roamed

Let her stay hidden

All the single women in the world

You cannot go and travel

Because you are a girl

Forbid someone gains

Even just a pound

Now they’re fat and worthless

Taking society to the ground

Eight tiny blessing

Somehow now a debate

How much will it cost us

To feed her 14, not 8

I shame all these opinions

Your cruelty and your hate

No hope left for anyone

We have already sealed our fate

Thanks for the comment Aj, you humble me with the amount of my writing you have read. You will have to write some more so I can read some more of yours as well. :)

kaiyan717, sadly we do violence to one another because of gender or other differences. I pray we'd respect each other, and hopefully not have sealed our fate. Thanks for sharing.
