The legacy you leave is the one you live

A hypnotizing breeze hath carried me
Through the torrent of an unknown menace.
I observe the unseen origin vanish
I’ve gotten into the deep nihility.
Strange, vile hands conquer me into an intense dark.
On the periphery of the humane,
I detect an obscure deceased silence;
The air filled with an anonymous yammer,
The fluid flooded with a focused red.
In the rancor of the painful legacy,
I’m imperiled betwixt deep ravines of the sadistic
Like a prisoner of war.
When the dark gets darker,
Suddenly I watch a bright light in the grim night,
That hath appeared to abandon the murk;
To decimate this escapade.
It has transposed me to the end of the infinite
To let me watch, with solace,
The end of fraternity- The Ultimate Catastrophe.

The author's comments:

In today's world, people have started getting lost in the already lost humanity! This poem is just my piece of thought about the vanishing tenderness and rapidly increasing cruelty. It's a personification of humanity which is just not in existence. It's a blend of rationalism and certitude that lets the reader enjoy and widen the roots of thinking.

Very POWERFUL! Simple but but so meaningful and TRUE. I love it how you just let it out so easily and were honest. I do agree with you completely, sometimes I just find myself wondering:" Where are we heading to like that? Is it ever gonna change?!" But to be honest I truly think that this is it, it can't get any worse than it already is. I guess I just want so badly to make a change in this world, one way or an other and sooner or later I hope I WILL. Thanks for sharing this it really inspired me It's amazing defenitly a 5 stars rating :D

I really like the vocabulary in this poem. It really helps to develop the feeling of darkness and struggle in the beginning.
