Hi everyone! This is one of the very few free verse poems I’ve recently written. I was inspired by T.S. Eliot’s style of writing and the certain ideas and themes he conveys in many of his poems including Wasteland, Preludes and Journey of the Magi.


Tired bones decaying in the ground

When shall the dirt dissolve for them to rise up?

Generation after generation, mistake after mistake,

Trespassing away.

Duty, responsibility, sacrifice,

These values exist to reform humanity.

What will open their minds and save their souls is the question,

Miracles are within nature

But with their whole being,

They cannot see or love the sanctity in the world.
