The Storm

image

All the time I feel the air.
Breezing by, everywhere.
Can it feel me? Does it notice me?
Does anyone, anywhere really care to see?
Everywhere I go, there’s no feeling of space.
Free from the toxins that impale this place.
Gone are the times of solitude and innocence.
Here is the now, the age of dissonance.
I walk among the reckless and the recluse.
Just those who are already stuck in the noose.
Kindly floating by, observing society.
Listening to the lack of sincere propriety.
Missing their voice, which got caught in the wind.
Nothing’s right, we’re trying too hard to blend.
Only to discover it’s us who are the plague- blurring among the faces, all too vague.
People who fall to greed and lust,
Quiver so slightly in the air like dust.
Rising through the storm are the few.
Sickness has settled on us all like dew.
Trying to win this fight-
Useless among both the bright and the blight.
Vehemently stretching with no success,
Will never supply us with happiness.
X’ing through our heart’s true desires
Yearning for something behind the fires.
Zoning ourselves far, far away- seems much safer when you have too much to say.

The Wrecked

image

Those who truly care
are locked out of sight.
The rest are emotionless, bare-
Only faking polite.

Their manners have diminished,
their compassion is frayed.
We are all unfinished,
our colors all fade.

But those who act
like what they are not-
their hearts are cracked,
their throats, tied in knots.

The rest who provide
humanity and respect
should feel pride
for not becoming wrecked.

Humanimals

Man has long believed
in his superiority
to animals.

Because of our capability
to control our actions
to make decisions
and to communicate.

But having this capability
doesn’t mean we use it.

What makes us so different
from one another
is that animals
have more humanity
than any human I’ve ever met.
and most humans
act more animalistic
than any animal I’ve ever seen.

 

I wrote this a long time ago, but when I heard of YuLin, I thought of it again. #StopYuLin2015

Starvation

Humanity is starved-
People are lacking.
Our faces are carved
and our souls are cracking.

The hungry
and the homeless
are not the only
who are ravenous.

With a desolate heart
and a barren life,
we are always craving-
Always caught in this strife.
