A LOSS OF INSIGHT

In the world, many a fool's theory
Listening to them, I look weary
Replying them, I feel dreary
With silence, I make merry

Their eyes they close at dawn and doubt 
In the morning, they are out and doubt
We doubt HIS existence! They shout
Sadly, little do they know about

For each day we see HIS wisdom and might
Their brains? Sadly fastened with 'a bight'
Thinking right? Apparently a lost insight
Retrieving? Out! They tell the light

Like  dogs their gods bark but not can bite
Like a rooster they fly but not a kite
See the stars and the moonlight
See the rays of the sunlight

The sweet songs of the canary we enjoy
In our daily lives, the water we employ
For our breath,  the air we deploy
Let the wise shout for joy

Indeed a nice poem. I kept away from poetrysoup for some time due to some reason. Now I am free and You have written a very good poem. The rhyming words do match nicely. Last stanza is also very good. Idea of shouting for joy is unique.

We can only see what we know. If we don't know, we don't see - because we fear.

Yes, there are those who doubt God's existence, and trying to convince them they're wrong is a waste of time. I enjoyed your moving poem, Adeniji! Janice

Dear Janice, thank you for taking your time to absorb the content of the poem. Truly, everyone is entitled to his own opinion. Unfortunately, many have been blindfolded, to see the reality. Much love, Adeniji.

You have the gift to render delight in lines of words and rhyme. There is much for which to be grateful, such that tears can flow into the water of rain to cool our mind and warm our heart.
