conscience Vs preachers

Updated on February 24, 2011

Dreams and tears fall to the floor and crash

And simple life burns, memory fades in a flash

When lives are lost, hope fades

And all what life hands us is several spades

Bloodied spades to dig for our comrades and loved ones holes

And now you watch as the body is detached from its soul

We have been blind, centuries gone astray

And in each other's bloody pits we had to lay

Bloodied palms, that know no mercy no humanity

We have walked this earth with nothing but vanity

Yet lives are always lost in what we call wars for peace

And the reality we yearn for, we are unable to seize

Scarred, we have created a world of pain

And the young ones know nothing but disdain

White crippled wings burning to ash, to the floor

And little young hearts, dark, yet promised to soar

We have murdered every shred of humanity

And lead a life under the flag of insanity

Hate, we have planted in the younger generation

Despair, murder rape and different methods of mutilation

Has the world finally turned its blind eye

Or are we only people who shed tears and sigh?

We were born with our destinies entwined

And together with our hearts unified

We can change the world, claim it our own

We can reject evil and its dark spawn

We are the future, yet where is our conscience?

Yet we know nothing but hate, what's that nonsense

Can we mutilate our own soul brother without remorse?

Can we force him to bleed plead yield by force?

How can a fragile heart turn to stone?

How can we ignore a mother's moan?

Do you expect a mother to stand and watch the light

Fades from the eyes of her precious child, despite

How many times her tears crash to the floor

How many times her body and soul sore

Will you hand her your shoulder to cry on

As you have taken the precious life of her son?

So tell me again, how can u sleep easily at night?

How can you ignore all those deaths insight?

And all the cries and moans how do they come to rest?

A young tree torn off its mother's chest

I have nothing but blood for the past 19 years

And watched bodies drain out of blood on spears

So tell me why my conscience screams at me

And yours is silent as usual preaching let it be

      Freya thanks for the comment and sorry for the late reply. I don't know what we have to do but preaching is not the only thing we can do. Perhaps we need to remember more about our human nature

      Very true! This poem is really important for humanity. We need to shake many shoulders and kick many butts, then make them drunk by pouring thousand kind of this poems into their lungs! I have same opinion with you on this! Great job, Sis! Beautiful and strong! Love it!

      @Mentalist acer : "Can someone be doing the right thing when taking the wrong course in life" that is a question that is ringing in my head :D

      @ Ben : sometimes we overlook the most important and precious things in life while trying to attain the unattainable. Sometimes we indulge ourselves in the materialistic world that we forget the treasures of life : family, peace , and content with ourselves and the world.

      @Nikki : oh i am preaching but i hope i get some action done

      Thanks guys for your comments and support :D

      Uriel - this is fantastic. Brutally true, and real. Wonderfully written, speaking truth that humanity doesn't want to hear.

      I also, have known blood for many years. The things that truly matter are overlooked so easily, and the truth of life seems like a fading element.

      Wonderful job, I loved it.

      They say the line between right and wrong is thin,though I believe few seek the difference within...I love your pictures and the lines you draw between courage,desparation,and the tragic right of wrong Uriel.;)
