Ninteenth Poem: The Fire of Problems

Millions of problems ignite in front of dispassionate eyes.
The flames of downfall burn brightly before the human race.
Billions of stares blankly misinterpret all that has gone wrong.
Some try to put out the flames, but without compassion, they are insurmountable.
All together we must smother the flames of suffering.
We must ban together, realizing the fire was our own creation.
Through hate,opression,and greed, we have ignited our hope to overcome.
Someday this fire must stop growing.
Someday, we shall put out the flsmes.
Someday all will be firefighters- working together to end the pain.

I was very inspired by poetry I was reading.

How those eyes became "dispassionate" I'll never understand. Where is humanity, what is our destiny if we can't feel the pain of others? Everyone has a "fire" and we should be conscious of our responsibility to help them with theirs, as they should ours. Somehow we lost our connection, our community-sense. Excellent prose, I enjoyed reading it several times.
