Contentions

Disqualified,
By their own inhabitions.
Seeking approval,
That would never come!
So for fun and Earthly pleasures done,
Self destruction begun...
As planned from the planting.
Contentions spent in doubt,
As irrelevent pretentions
Wiped them out!
And attempts to save them were declined.
Since they sought to define themselves,
With no time left to borrow!
Debating arguments,
Stalled their collective purpose and intent!
And they lost to ineffectiveness.
With any worthiness not missed at all!

I think that the parenthesis symbolize the irony between the beauty of war and the beauty of the sea anemone which is as beautiful as it can come -Rotana Amer
Nice piece of work. Thanks for sharing this poem with us. E.K.L.
In fact I am reading this poem second time owing to its own beauty and I take it as an opportunity to read it in such happiness.
I like this one, its Good
Beauty is that the which pleases and delight the wordings of immanuel Kant is quoted by the poet in this little poem which is the fact about the beauty. What is actually coming to mind and thinking is beauty is normally described by individual according to his vision of thought and the think most interested in him and therefore varies in different situations according to conveniences.The poem is very nice to read.
