“The People’s Poem”

I was told by a friend on forwardpoetry to write a poem about People but I asked him what to describe in that? He told me that whatever you want to describe whether it is sad or funny, whether it is sensible or idiotic. His name is datguydere. So I decided to made this poem.
Here it is…

Mask after Mask
men change and reverse,
Adapt every colour
as chameleon does,
Live in the dead city
full of cruel wilds,
Hunt all around
with behaviour mild,
Chase success
from valleys to hills,
Ready to do anything
to fulfill their wills,
Remain only a body
in which devil resides,
and forget even
what is wrong and right?

About the Poem-
This poem is about our new generation which is selfish and have no care of anybody and it can be seen by us. While we say that we are good but people of our generation or our time became so much selfish that they don’t care for anybody even their family now. Man has hunger of money and power and when he get it, he becomes like an animal. And its truth.

When I made this poem,this was in stanza form but after continuous reading,I found it to be keeping in continuous form without stanzas will be better than then.

The person who said me to make this poem was datguydere and he is at Forward Poetry Social. Want to meet him, go to and check out his poems. He writes awesome.
And did you like this poem? Please let me know by your comments.

    i think that sometimes myself, blaming it on my age, but after reading your poem, i realize i am right to some points. people are different today than before. why do you think this is happening?

      Because mam,I’m seeing this with my own eyes. Brother is killing his own brother for just a little amount of property. Terrorists who lives in their country are planning for the destruction for their own country. Even the common man is converting him to terrorists due to poverty,unemployment etc. Infact the cause of poverty,unemployment is also a man. Hence this justifies that our generation became the enemy of its own people.
