It was God who created the beginning of life
Since man arrived there has been nothing but strife
When the air was fresh and the rivers where clear
The birds and the animals had nothing to fear

Now even in those early times
Man was the one who was committing the crimes
They started wars, they fought and died
Though living in harmony they never tried

Man even tried to replace the horse
With the internal combustion engine of course
Which eventually led to the motor car
A shiny vehicle that would take man far

They split the atom, a shock wave was felt
If man played with uranium the planet might melt
Oh will mankind go to far
Or make a new life near and far.

My very first poem - Written in 2000

    Hi Linda, I thought it was time to reveal my very first poem, it was a rhyming poem as most of my new ones have been narrative, I found that rhyming poems restrict my imagination so I broke from this tradition and created the more straight forward poems, I do have a vivid imagination and I like to write as I feel the inspiration, it seems far more interesting that way.
