The Reduction in Quality

This rapidly changing state of mind
My soul cries to restore balance
The wave of thoughts I have
Vacillate by instability
Fluctuate unexpectedly

Hover amidst the unpredictable
Accompanied by uncertainty
My plans are of possibilities
My horizon is of no end

My future is of no existence
While the past deeply buried
Archived amongst many tales
Of old times’ nights and days
About the fabulous and the hideous

As I wander further
With no greater curiosity
Little effort I bear along
To face the unexpected
Various woven worlds
Hidden by poverty
Concealed by arrogance
Obscured by greed
Out of sight to the elites
Damaged in the name of growth
By weapons of exploitation
As if it is a secret passage
To some tombstones
Of innocent deaths
Or murdered mass
Conducted barbarously
Implemented by savage criminals

The loss of humanity
The great price of which
Nature comes to terms with
Failures to successful adaptation
Of mankind’s deliverance

The reduction in quality
Burden the countless children
Unseasoned with experiences
Their vigorous and fresh youths
Polluted by the ruined ecosystem
Corrupted by revolting tastes
Of dirty water and wicked stench
Of contagious loathsome diseases

Repulsive force I sense
With such despair and rebellion
My moral sense is offended
Conflicting my emotions
Driven this being forcefully
To reject arrogance
And condemn discrimination

I am left in realisation
About the existence of mankind
Mostly learnt never to share
Nothing more than to consume
All things possible
Of what is placed before them
Never to consider
How another may suffer
Such indigence existence
For basic needs to survival

What left there is only
Great distrust towards authority
And disappointments in humanity
Much discomfort in enjoying success
At which time
One made no contributions
A lesson is left behind
About consumerism and profits
About self preservation and well being
Erase the existence of some others

O.. you know of such greed
No lesson about sharing
But eat all that is set and served
Before your eyes at all times
“As some Angolan child
Are living in destitution
You shall waste no crust
Nor leave a grain”

Artist's Description

The lesson most people learn is to consume all that is set before them since some others are starving.

The most important lesson mankind shall be taught is to share the things they have more of as some others have not enough in order to stay alive.

What we contribute is what result we will put up to.
