Short Poems

1. “Broken Windows”
Broken windows, shattered dreams
We turn a blind eye, it seems
Torn apart by our own hands
We ignore the cries of the land

2. “A World Without Love”
A world without love is a barren wasteland
Where hate and fear reign supreme
Our hearts must sow the seeds of compassion
For only then can we truly dream

3. “Echoes in the Shadows”
Echoes in the shadows, whispers in the night
The marginalized wait for their moment to fight
Their voices drowned out by the powerful few
But their message of change rings ever true

4. “The Weary Road”
Walking down the weary road,
Wondering where our lives will go,
Together we must carry the load,
And forge a better path to sow.

Medium Poems

The Lost Connection”

In a world where screens reign supreme,
And virtual contact is the new regime,
Do we remember the beauty of face to face,
Or the warmth of a shared embrace?

Our eyes are glued to flashing lights,
And our fingers tap on screens so bright,
While the world outside goes unnoticed,
And our human connection is unfocused.

We scroll and scroll through social feeds,
And forget the taste of life’s simple needs,
For in the end, what will we gain,
From a virtual reality in a world so plain?

Let us break the chains of this disconnected fate,
And rediscover the beauty that’s innate,
For in the face of technology’s tall tower,
We must not forget our human power.

The Path Unseen”

When the night falls and the world’s asleep,
And the streets are empty, with secrets to keep,
Do we see the shadows that lurk in the dark,
And the faces that hide, with pain so stark?

Do we see the hands that reach out for aid,
And the hearts that beat, in fear so forbade,
For the path unseen is the one most traveled,
By those who are broken, lost and unraveled.

We must open eyes that see beyond the light,
And walk a path that is compassionate and right,
For only then can we bring hope to the broken,
And heal the wounds that leave us all so shaken.

Let us step out of our worlds, so safe and sound,
And explore the unknown, that’s hidden underground,
For in the end, it’s not what we see, but what we do,
In this world of chaos, loved by so few.

Long Poems

The Broken Society

In this world of ours
Where hope used to flourish
We see nothing but despair
As society is broken beyond repair

The rich get richer
And the poor get poorer
The gap between them grows wider
While society becomes darker and colder

Children are born into poverty
With no hope of escaping it
Their parents struggle to make ends meet
While society turns a blind eye to their defeat

Education is a privilege
Reserved only for the wealthy
Leaving the rest behind
In darkness and uncertainty

Injustice prevails
As the powerful hold on to their might
Leaving the weak to fend for themselves
In a world where justice is always out of sight

The environment suffers
As we continue to exploit it
Ignoring the damage we cause
As we pray for someone to come and solve it

But hope still lingers
In the hearts of those forgotten
Who dream of a society
Where everyone is treated equally and not broken

Let us come together
And build a better tomorrow
Where opportunities are plenty
And the light of hope will never again be hollow.

So let us unite
And fight for the society we all deserve
Where love, compassion, and kindness reign
And we can finally overcome the brokenness and pain.

Broken Society

Our world is a broken society,
Where judgments consumed human piety,
Hate and anger are everyone’s priority,
Where empathy is just a piece of rarity.

Injustice and inequality are our norms,
Power and wealth govern all forms,
Suffering, pain, and distress take storms,
And fears and doubts make us deform.

Racism and discrimination still prevail,
Devouring the hopes and dreams that we entail,
Gender disparity and violence never derail,
Still prevailing through decades and entail.

We fight wars on the pretext of peace,
Pretending to be upright, we aim to fleece,
We segregate the poor from the rich at ease,
And our politicians are corrupt in degrees.

Our resources are depleting and destroyed,
Environment and nature forever toyed,
For profit and gain, we are all devoid,
Paving a path for doom, we are all overjoyed.

Our children suffer, and their innocence fades,
In this unforgiving world, they face constant raids,
We make them carry more than they can hold,
Leaving them to fend for themselves all bold.

We cry, we shout, we protest every day,
For our rights, our freedom, we hope to sway,
To create a world where love will forever stay,
And where kindness will reign in every way.

We need to act, we need to unite,
To heal our world, and make things right,
For every human, no matter their sight,
To grant them love and hope and light.

Our world may be broken, but not our true hearts,
For deep down, love and compassion always start,
We will rise together, hand in hand, to make our world anew,
And let every person shine, beautiful and true.
