Sonnet: Whither Art Thou Heading, Man?

With scientific advances, man has gone
Uncivilized, immoral, atheist;
Believing in his own works, blows his horn;
With heart and soul afilled with sinful mist.

Man wants the world today, so free and fair,
Life peaceful, bountiful; future rosy;
The way, he treats his brethren, God can’t bear,
Denying freedom, man remains nosy.

Man knows he can’t withstand Nature’s fury;
Can he then bear God’s anger and His might?
Past history is something man can’t bury,
Nor learns from blunders to do what is right.

Oh, whither art thou heading man, these days?
A single hair is plucked not till God says.
