Looking back

A poem comparing the purity of nature to the impurity of humans.


1. Looking back

The flutter of a bird’s wing

On the midnight breeze

The cry of a lonely lamb

And the whisper of the trees


The clumps of sodden earth and mud

Is home to many beast

No matter how big or small

They all live in peace


Oh how I wish it could be so

For us humans too

However we are always at war

It shows how little we know


I doubt we’ll ever live in peace

And not be at war

Why not treat others as equals?

Why be unkind to the poor?


I realise now, looking back

How deficient we humans are

Brother turns on brother

It shows that hatred can go far
