    Laugh and Point

    We laugh, We look, We point, Never at ourselves,
    But at what is wrong around us,
    In disbelief and knowing we can and could do better,
    We think we know therefore we are right, This is true for all,
    No matter how wrong it is, It's always right,
    For a civilization based on our intelligence,
    The process of thought as an individual,
    We can take progress to the next level or drag it down,
    Ourselves with it to that of a irrational moron,
    Following a decree set down by those who is are right,
    They can never see how wrong they really are,
    Yet followers we are, Every thing we should know, Think,
    For ourselves is replaced by a space,
    Void of the cosmic law of right or wrong, What is moral,
    For the greater good is replaced with the greater greed,
    A image in our minds we share without knowing,
    Thinking or living,
    So without the feelings of love, Life and living,
    For all to make this world a place we all would love,
    To live in such, We wait,We exist and we die

    Must admit, I'm guilty of this. Will mend my ways after your poem. Like this. You are a neighbor. Sally

    I like the way you have captured the ignorance of intellegence. To be right all the time is wrong for no one is truely perfect. People forget to be human and look at themselves and just live and like one another, life would be so much easier.

    One of my favorites definitely. I so agree! Great work.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
