Here is a simple little poem I wrote that I think can be somewhat applicable to the world today.

Sheets of Ice Skidding across sheets of ice, drifting to lands unknown. The final throw of the gambler’s dice, leaves the last poor man alone. The dimmest light could pierce the dark, the weakest flame could shatter the cold. But there’s nothing left to make a spark, and not a thing on Earth to behold. Empty lands of ash and soil, no life or animation. No one left for work or toil. or for dreams or aspirations. A lonely place it will be, when quiet rules the world. But death alone will dance in glee, as sinews of peace unfurl.

It has power, it has sadness, it has texture, body, outline with context.

Very good :)

Thanks for all the commentary guys. Poetry is just something I do ever once in awhile if I happen to feel inspired, as I did when I wrote this.
