I WONDER

They know who they are But can’t tell what they are They know their aim But at it they can’t aim I wonder! They’ve cleared their route On it, for once, they’ve never marched So nice a path for themselves they’ve cleared Afraid, their feet hesitate to tread I wonder! Rightly, to them, it does belong And sure, they’ve known for long So great a chance, for them, God made See, they watch as into thin air it fades I wonder! See how blessed they are From this very truth they are far On the key have their fingers been placed To try their luck with the lock, they can’t I wonder! What they are not They claim to be What they claim to be To become, they strive not I wonder! See how ignorant they are See how, their own future, they mar See how for doom they head See how from the devil’s pot they feed I really wonder!

iii wonder too if they know what society has become because of these....or do they think they are above all else...like the way this one takes the reader down the road of uncertainty and makes them ponder their own thoughts! Nice Write!

Hmmm...sometimes you have to wonder. Good in contrast to evil. A moral view of what is happening in the society is portrayed in your poem. Keep on writing. You may want to check out my work and see if you agree with me.
