Poetry:Drowning Humanity

Updated on October 10, 2014

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.

      Such a sad poem. Fate so final.

      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.
