Alas

Alas! Mankind 
Is preoccupied
With living
Not loving. 
Alas!

Alas! It's all too true that we get too caught up with material things and not with the things that should really matter in life! Thanks for sharing this poetic gem! Pandiya

This one hit hard Gerald! It is unfortunate that circumstances force some to just survive by the basic needs without thinking too much about their emotions but it is more unfortunate for those who have a lot and yet they fall short when it comes to love. Excellently penned!

Grook!!! Still talking about names (^_^) this is a funny one for such a deep and interesting philosophical thought. I love short poems...perhaps because of my long name!? Btw, it is a poem in itself, ypu know: the whole means "This- seed'- that- has- been- blessed- with-the-power-of-LIFE/ is The -Princess-To-Rule-Qver-You/ And-now-she-is-married-to-my-son-the-one-blessed-by-BEAUTY"...Blessings to you too, dear poet friend , Hanitra

Quite a big challenge but I'll try and if I get exhausted, it will be your fault!...

Do that 'short' name in shape; I'm sure to love it. Thank you, VRA.

So true! We are all so concerned with money and the "finer things" in life. Yet, all we really need is love! A great message in this poem! Great work, Gerald!...Thank you for the nice comments. I really appreciate it!

Dan, I'm not even sure; it's my first day out on a voyage of discovery! Let me know if it fits.
