213. As It Is Modern Civilisation

No time to wait; no time to waste
As every time man has to run fast.
Without waiting for her boy friend
A girl easily choses another friend
To share with him everything
As it is modern civilization.

With Time's course rites and customs change
As we are living in the modern age.
The elder gets no respect as moral value erases.
Selfishness surrounds us; culture vanishes.
Human feeling has been lost day by day.
Money has captured his heart slowly.

We are addicted to material things
And becoming unsocial beings.
Beauty of sun setting does not move us
Dancing of the half naked girls attracts us too much.
The concept of the true relationship fades away.
We give priority to 'give and take policy'.

Now child is born quite untimely
And fed on artifical food carefully.
It is deprived of breast milk and parents' care
As they are busy making money more and more.
They don't have much time to love their baby.
Human minds work like machines exactly.

Man's heart is captured with envy and narrowness.
Love, sympathy, empathy and kindness
Are going far away from human heart and mind.
Human heart does not feel others' suffering
And it works like a machine
As it is modern civilization.

Poetry's usefulness is fully dependent on the reader and their individual reaction to it. I'd say there's 'use' in yours... great write! Brian
A piece about the analysis about poetry and its place in our world - in my opinion, poetry is like a little indigent café you see next to a neo-techno corporation block in a big, bustling metropolitan. It is not necessarily needed but it helps run life better when people get sick of the ordinary world. It is hardly seen but it is there. A wonderful piece. - K.
True indeed. Poetry doesn't always need to be understood. You just need to let it wash over you, engulf you, and leave you breathless in words and mists of white cold.
Thank you for this and thank the lord for poetry. I couldn't live without it now. I really enjoyed your dive into what makes poetry. 10 from Tai, wishing you a happy St Patrick's Day
hello, ballerina. i'm not sure if it's leonard cohen or someone else who wrote: poetry is just the evidence of life if your life is burning well poetry is just the ash. i like your poem and the message/philosophy it conveys. your choice of words glides smoothly from line to line, thought-provoking, perfect. even your name is poetic, ballerina with fins! have a blessed day. sincerely, merc
