Seen the People ( for April Poetry Month)
Seen the People
People forget kind acts and love,
Carry on harsh word like a thorn,
Bear abuse and slurs thrown ever,
Cherish a true word of repentance,
Seen the people stick to a penny,
Kick the fortunes along their way.
Shun guys like dust lying on earth,
Embrace all in their ethereal space,
Adore mortals as deities in temple,
Spread fragrance and drink venom,
Seen the people die for false honor,
Live like kings in the desolate dens.
Fritter time to seek a holy abode,
Ask for breaths to hug the world,
Grow smiles and laughs on lips,
Keep frowns in the vase of heart,
Seen the people go mad for love ,
Rob the lives of wealth of breath.
Wander in dark to pursue the evil,
Savor light to brighten the sight,
Live as pellucid water to mirror all,
Turn a stone to strike and crush,
Seen the people turn blind to love,
Pour nectar into hearts and souls.
I see the alley, and guys go alone,
How leaves fall off on the ground !
I hear the wind to whisper in ears,
All good will go, all bad too will go,
Seen the people act like immortals,
Feel as dust to shine in the world !
