We feel the need to bleed
as we destroy our world
How can we look in the mirror
without shedding shameful tears.
We are doing it to ourselves,
sending our home to hell.
Chemicals and plastic smothering
our dream's existence of living in peace.
Yet our need for greed ignites
a green eyed monster
a surreal hunger eats us alive daily
will this world eternally survive our appetite.
No truthfully it won't, I'm afraid
unless the monster is slayed
fire breathing across the earth rapidly
destroying all that is naturally wondrous.
Where shall we all go now
to the stars and beyond
having destroyed our human village
as we burned, murdered and pillaged.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
