A Mixed-Up World

April 8, 2013
A mixed-up world
Of pain and death
Of memories and hurt
Where all that lives
Is the past.

A mixed-up world
Of blood and fights
Of sadness and depression
Where all that thrives
Is the greed.

A mixed-up world
Of money and poverty
Of hunger and distress
Where all that remains
Is the want.

A mixed-up world
Of storms and floods
Of paths and choices
Where all that wins
Is the defeat.

A mixed-up world
Of loneliness and power
Of selfishness and ignorance
Where to all this leads
Is the end.

You certainly know how to use repetition to your advantage. In your further works, experiment some more with this literary device, like Robert Frost did, and that will be another rower on your poetry canoe (terrible metaphor but oh well lol) Also the stanzas having five lines instead of four adds to the meaning of the poem because it is an odd mix-up from the traditional quatrain. Good going with structure control! :D
