“Societal Suicide”

Who will do our heartfelt eulogy,
the last words over humanity,
who will say beautiful words over us. . . . .

About how we were intelligent.
About how we showed compassion.
About how we survived war after war.
About our historical romances.
About our brilliant time in the sun.

If we do not change our course,
we will certainly burn down,
our own night to wander aimlessly. . . . 

How we invented the wheel.
How we invented the car.
How we invented the radio.
How we invented life saving medicine.
How we created the laws of the land.

Never to touch the face of God,
for we have killed ourselves
by committing societal suicide.

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".
