The Nemesis Of Man

I hear the screams
I feel the pain
crashing, destroying, and annihilating whatever heart
that's left in this world.
Confusion taking over the fragile mind
Greed tearing apart so many lives
Pain amongst pain, pang of guilt tearing apart the
human heart
Can it be true?

The heavens are crying, shedding tears of sorrow
Watching us penetrate anguish into our own souls
Is it all a nightmare - a creation of our self conscious?
A quiet, ticking voice - controlling our every moment
Too invisible for the human eyes - to see, to feel,
or to comprehend.

We see 'them' working their evil - taken over by greed,
animosity and hate
Man's worst enemy is man himself
As the stands of time continue to fall -
will civilization perish or stand tall?

Man's worst enemy is man himself As the stands of time continue to fall - will civilization perish or stand tall? Nice lines, and a nice poem.
like watching a news prog on prime time world news .... one feels the desperation and the anguish.... nice lines...... hope u are flushing NY of all this cheers
both of your poems are great...thought provoking.
This poem stands out with it's vivid description but it lacks soul and the authors feeling.
