we are the children of destiny
the children born in dignity
the children born in empathy
we are the children of festivity

we are the children of honesty
integrity,
sincerity
yesterday's future, here and free
the past and present yet to be

intelligence, we have in quantity
words, we spew compassionately
fighting for rights and equality
we are the children of morality

we are the children of vanity
tapping, clicking technology
we are the slaves of liquid glee
a drug, a hit, a shopping spree

we are the children of secrecy
hide the lies uncomfortably
tell it all with urgency
fix it for the novelty

we are the children of conformity
a wrong look here and we'll agree
"illness is the cause of thee"
the children-slaves to surgery

we are the children of monstrosity
messes of deformity
breaking bombs and screaming pleas
is this what we want to see?

we are the children of electricity
the children of calamity
profanity
insanity--


we are the children of humanity
Impulse poem a while ago. I need to update and keep this account in check :/

I'm not misanthropic, just... distressed.

I feel like the topics I covered here are too vague. Sometimes I am touched by these feelings of mass hysteria, where I wonder where we will all be, where we will go. We will be something, someday, but what? And what are we now?

Why is it that human beings are the only thing to do such calamitous damage to the earth? Are we that incapable, with all our capabilities, to protect what is freely given?

What right do we have to call it "humanity" when everything we do is inhumane? Even typing on this computer means pollution to the darkening sky. And there, we have our first contradiction.

Ramblings at midnight. :)

Thanks for viewing~

That's my favourite part.
This is sadly true, and you wrote it wonderfully :)

I'm glad I can help :glomp:
That might be the case, but it could also be the whole "an artist's greatest critic is themselves" thing? :)
