“A Contradictory Extinction”

Searching for better mousetrap
leaves the land scarred and barren
untold wealth has been mined
but at what price to the face of the earth.

Searching for a longer life
cut the forest down to the core
In the name of our youth
entire species perished, lost to greed.

Searching for the green icon
has put people in unemployment lines
down sizing saves nothing but green
while losing homes, filling the streets.

My God, where will it end
while searching for man's improvement
we destroy our basis for living
the earth and our dignity. . . gone forever.

Timothy Michael DiVito c1996
“Where will it all end”

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".
