Existence

I watch the burning fire
That cannot warm me up
And miss my childhood days
And the laughter U can noplace find

The smoke flies up to heaven
The ashes remain in the ground
My soul got caught in this body
Lazy to set loose after I'm gone

I wonder if our time's eternal
While everything around is mortal
I wish I had a secret power
To root out evil forever

To animate my fairy tales heroes
And tolerate the innocent victims
Of ignorance and apocalyptic collapse
To share the misery of misunderstanding

To melt down the iron borderlines
And free the prisoners of a selfish ego
To abolish all the moneys and religions
To fortify the fragile balance of existence

WHY IS THERE WAR? WHAT IS THE POINT?
There was a time when war started and ended. In today's world it never seems to end. Blood thirsty humans have crossed all the boundaries. Nothing is off the table. Reading this poem is painful yet in some way it's poetic expression has a calm effect. All I can do is to pray for peace. May peace prevail in our hearts.
Very poetic way to portray the depth of humanity's plunge while clutched in the grip of bloody, senseless war.
