NaPoWriMo Day 20

The prompt on the NaPoWriMo Facebook site was to let the theme "darkness and light" inspire a poem. A lot of my prior poetry (not necessarily published her) actually deals with that aspect. My interpretation of this theme is about addressing the darkness of humanity (others might call it social injustice, lack of enlightenment of society, rat-eat-rat mentality etc). Not necessarily writing a goth-style poem. Although, I have done that too.

For today's poem I used a word list to help me along.

Why does humanity fail?
Where would equality be
when freed from power and greed
instead of robbed of  redemption.
Violated manners, thoughtless betrayal
yield nothing but impatience
thoughtless hunger
fails to starve freedom.
