Greed Of Man


Poem Commentary

This was the very first poem I ever wrote... back in March of 1981. I was just a little wolf back then. Young and inexperienced.

Greed Of Man

Listen to my story and see how we crave
Of ancient days and evil ways
How one must die to save his brother
And the love they have for one another

Crumbled kingdoms which now must die
Buried beneath the earth they lie
Broken homes and far away places
Fearful looks upon their faces
Starving children diseased and poor
What now does the future hold in store

My Dearest Friend , this was a bit of a tugger...another true, we see so much unbalanced in today's Earth....if only most could push out all negative away from self into the Universe so it can transpire into Positive...oh what a wondrous place we could be...Mankind has the Power and Ability to thrive and Manifest good things just as much as it has to destroy itself....A Dynamic Piece...Keep sharin'...Love and Light,Tierra@}-'-,

Sad and true, my friend. A story that will never end.

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
