All That We Can Be?

Wars, deaths and destruction
Suffering everywhere I look
And no matter how much we gave
it was never as much as they took

Men in power
abusing, opressing
everything sorrounding them
each ruler more depressing

And although we speak of change
repetance is all I can see
Mankind was supposed to evolve
But is this all we can be?

A question I ask all the time - an excellent, thoughtful poem.
I second the feeling for that.Good straightforward poem.Your strength is that you are very direct to the point with no excessive words.I gave you a ten
My vote 10 for mankind. Nice optimistic poem.
usually when writing something like this using rhymes takes away from the sincerity of it, but that definitely didn't happen here, I love this!
