Generation “Crimson”

Consider I not the sweet but sour
 my teeth do gnash this late night hour

Sorrow makes the news... a constant reality
 as Love gains distance from humanity

A crimson generation we've become
 No fire works, we prefer guns and exploding bombs

And to what end is all the killing- what creed?
 lives-limbs lost, fulfilling what need?!
She could have been our mother,
 They could have been your kin

... They were!

They are!

I am!

We are!
So whats with all the blood spilling?

...O Love be our volition to find!
 That this generation may regain its title-

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is KINDNESS- Dalai Lama

  1. Really powerful. I especially like the use of form in this poem. It goes from structured and rhyming to interrupting itself and then moving back to form and rhyme, although altered. I think the way you wrote it reinforces the chaos and confusion you are writing about, and how we are never quite the same after. Brilliant read. (plus, i also love how you found kindness at the end.)

  2. Beautiful piece. Very moving, very effective rhyme and rhythm. I love the ending because it leaves the reader with hope. Thank you for this. And thank for you liking my post “seamlessly” at Blessings of every KIND to you.

    • O thank you Cheryl ๐Ÿ™‚ … I am so moved by your comment and glad it made a positive impression in especially the feeling I was trying to portray.

  3. If only we could all adopt your kind of heart. A heart of kindness!
    Love is the cure for the ills in this generation.
    What can bring us together again?
    What can make us trust each other?
    What can take away the competition and strife?
    What can leave peace as the most important achievement?
    We need love in our world!
    I am deeply inspired by your words, festivalking!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Feel free to tell me how you feel about this piece :)
