Ugly

Updated on April 20, 2018

Ugly


Living in a world of abundance,
having high stakes and low ethics,
is ugly.

Human essence,
is in preserving innocence,
otherwise its ugly.

Surge of urge, for pleasure,
with no remorse, whatsoever,
is ugly.

Quick justice, well-deserved,
when undelivered,
is ugly.

      Your drawing matches the words, perfectly, Hari, and reflect Man's greatest sin: Indifference.

      Thanks CrisSP. Yes, things are getting worse.

      Creating awareness can manage this menace and as writers we can at least write to spread the message to public.

      Yes, very ugly and sad to see that it's becoming the reality of the world we now live in. My role, now is to try to twist this in my own little way. So, I try to look at things differently and try to see and seek the goodness in life instead. It's hard but I try hard (and harder).

      Peace~

      I'm afraid, my friend, that greed controls this world of ours. Very sad to see.

      Thanks Threekeys, Truth / Karma always prevails no matter how many time a lie is told, ultimately, it will always fetch the wrong results. Those who walk that path, will eventually know it, if not now, later.

      I was listening to a talk being given by an Australian authou yesterday, He was making a social commentary about our country and amongst all of his ideas he also said these words which lingered in my mind afterwards. "Lies are quick to be and the truth is slow to show.But with the truth, no matter what is made to sound " believable" (="propaganda"), is instinctively heard and registers within us.

      Everything changes when our own reference of

      Beauty and ugliness is reset.Here the poet has

      new norms from them.good sensitivity shown by
