    Innocence


    Wild animals never kill for sport.  Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow-creatures is amusing in itself.  ~James Anthony Froude, Oceana, 1886

    Soul within
    the darkness lies,                                                     
    Innocence falls to its wrath.
    Meek and humble
    The gentle die-
    The abyss is deep;
    Shield of darkness
    Against the light
    Lost within a broken mind.
    Peace,
    It beckons
    Taunting those
    Whose essence
    Remains unseen.
    Anger filled,
    Their only vision
    Vast destruction-
    Victory.
    “This world is ours,”
    Hear them cry,
    “bow down to your Gods!”                                                                                                             -lest you die;

    ahh the cruelty of man... bravo on the poem, brevity at its finest! you are amazing as always my Lupine friend :)

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
