Tentacles of Power (When a Good Man turns Greedy)


Greed like the endless sea
Corrupts a man like a wooden ship
Power like the pounding waves
Erodes even the solid virtues
Humans have gone a long way
History keep repeating itself
Visionaries overpowers the meek
From the caveman to modern times
Hunger of man for supremacy
Cannot be bound by the vast galaxy
Contentment can never be achieved
Like the vacuum of space, beyond measure




"I have known a friend who grew up like a saint and witnessed him being sucked and distorted by the Tentacles of Politics."

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
