My Rumblings

My Rumblings

Ungrateful heart
the reason we take others for granted.

Greed
the reason we think we can eat our cake and still have it.

Pride
the reason Lucifer fell;the reason we will fail.

Perfection
we pray for what we want and wish for what we don’t want
the reason for turmoil.

Paranoia
the reason every whisper sounds like a name.

Regret
the reason we can never see anything good in our choice of focus.

Love
the reason there is hate.

Friendships
the reason we have smiles.

Pain
the reason we are human.

Hurt
the reason we are alive.

Betrayal
the reason there is no trust.

Loyalty
we all want it but can’t give it.

Truth
the reason there will always be lies
how many really wanna know the truth?

Judgement
we dish it generously; we refuse it vehemently.

Sacrifice
the reason there’s two staying one.

Integrity
we all talk the talk but we hate the walk.

My rumblings
the reason am sane.

  1. WOW the very last statement blew my mind. “My rumblings, the reason I’m still sane.”

    I can’t express how much I loved this. Allow me call this crew to express their thoughts @Ivie9ja @ameenaedrees @anakadrian

    Happy New Year in advance!

    1. Yes. That was quite a meaningful line, and a sweet ending.

    2. Oh this is really nice, I love it, I must thank @ufuomaotebele for calling me.
      Nice work.

  2. Thanks Ufuoma. looking forward to reading other comments.

    1. This poem was just nice. You described basic situations of the human condition in a splendid way.

      Now, just to nit-pick. Did you mean “rumblings” or “ramblings”

  3. thank you Anak. i actually meant rumblings to mean ‘Pervasive, widespread expression of dissatisfaction’ and plus i like the sound of it. lol

    1. Nice. I like the way you think.

  4. Ok I was going to ask the same whether you meant rumblings or ramblings. I like this its like a brief analysis of life itself of the things good and bad that make us human. Nice one. Thanx @Ufuomaotebele for the recommendation
