Despair

A Cognitive Dissonance We love the blossoms beauty We ask only for the beauty to grow. Yet we war and destroy the blossoms More surely than the snow. We war and claim to love the earth We war and poison the dirt That produces the withered blossom That produces the wilted blossom We listen to the music to lighten our hearts Then we go to war and destroy our ears So we can n o longer hear the music start Wee war forever and ever for years Dominic James Wiebersch.

Dominic, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@,
