All things

If all things come to an end
Why is there war?
Why is there persecution?
Why is there greed, hatred, and bigotedness?
I see that not all things come to an end
Only the good ends
The love, kindness, and generosity run out
But the blind hate seems to overflow from a basin with no bottom
As one conflict resolves
Another sprouts forth

Why does man fight itself?
Why does the pain of one equal the joy of another?
Mankind is despicable
Mankind is crude
Mankind is evil
Why don't all things come to an end?

a passionate and beautiful poem from a poet who recognizes the power of love - but maybe is starting to thin that evil is even more powerful? ...ya know...good = god and evil = devil - simple play on words but profound...hate is easier to follow ...conflict eases recession...war creates weath. mankind is not evil....only the powers that contol us. thanks for the inspiration!

You show a greater understanding. I would love to see how you answer those questions. Because when you do you may find humanity is not nearly as hopeless as it seems.
