Equilibrium

Mythical beings contemplating humanity

By Mohammed DarasiPublished 11 months ago 1 min read

Absolutely meaningless, the life they lead

Bustling towards nothing, but continue to breed

Contesting the earth, polluting it too

Demanding more from it than it can do

Excess seems the theme, they live and dream

Forever wanting more, they see no extreme

Gather and pilfer, from mother earth the filler

Hedonistic until the end, seems to show the trend

Individualistic yet social, to destruction they wend

Jaunting through earth, until the bitter end

Killing the planet from all possible angles

Laughing, while the earth slowly crumbles

Meaningless existence, the earth lowly mumbles

--

Not entirely false, yet not complete

Objectively, they have been great, in time so fleet

Possessing minds so imaginative and upbeat

Questioning everything around, never obsolete

Regardless of the challenges, they try and beat

Struggles against progress, they break through and ingress

The food chain, and somehow to the top transgress

Ultimate predator, controllers of earth they become

Valiantly against the tide, they don’t succumb

Willing to burrow through and overcome

Xenial the earth hadn’t been for them

Yet the natural order they condemn

Zealots of survival, and menacing presence

    It's us right, we are the planet killers with meaningless lives 😣

    I’m impressed by this creative approach to alphabetic poetry. I’ve never seen this done before. What a unique and intriguing piece. The elements might’ve been dark but that’s right up my ally. Bravo 👏🏼 I want to say I wish more people would do this, but then it wouldn’t be as special and impactful. Memorable is what it is. Great work!
