Dedicated to poor Tasmanian Tigers that left this world for selfishness and cruelty of humans…

From the far horizon

Dark clouds rolled with thunder and lightning

Powerful wind swept Footsteps of ignorance roamed

Cunning, cruel and paranoid

Crawled all around the land beautiful

Swallowing every Tasmanian Tigers on the way cruelly

Rain never came to give them the last drop

Clouds of fury on the sky

Footsteps walked every space

Singing songs of Tasmanian Devils portraying Horror in Mystic way

Painting those poor creatures as Devils and Demons on every canvas drawn

Fear overwhelms every mind

Shedding blood of the last one left

Laughed those footsteps in Triumph

Searching others moving behind the curtains

Once the sky was clear

Where songs of Horror was the past

Fools Triumph, Fools Triumph

Somewhere tears for them falls world around

For the lost heavenly creature

O! Let us pray for those poor creatures

Lived with us happily once.

I like this :D just a couple notes: Clouds of fury in the sky (rather than on the sky); portraying Horror in a Mystic way or portraying Horror in Mystic ways (rather than in Mystic way, which sounds kinda funny); Lived with us happily in unknown area...I'm not quite sure if you meant in an unknown area or an unknown era on that. But I really like this poem :) it speaks the emotions clearly.

Sad poem, but nicely put. There are certainly little grammatical issues here and there (mostly lack of commas), but Iskah caught some for you. I'll add the following:

"Searching other moving behind the curtain" should either have "others" in the plural OR the noun, "movement". Also, "somewhere" is one word.

I love this..It's so sad thinking about animals being harmed and killed by humanity..I just read where in Taiwan the Clouded Leopards are declared extinct..Sad...Poachers, probably...It's absolutely awful. I love big cats. :( Wonderful poem. You really captured the emotion well! :D

I love this poem. As a lover of nature it saddens me so much to see the senseless destruction of the environment and all the creatures that call it their home. In this poem, you can feel the sadness of the animals. You can feel their pain. You can hear their voice. I only wish that others will read this and understand the sad yet profound truth of this piece and work to undo the harm that modern society has already done. Bravo friend. Please keep writing about these issues. Please be the voice of these creatures.

Very good. It reminds me of how I probably won't ever get to see one that's alive. I hope they can bring them back to life someday.

Such a heartfelt ode to a lost creature of Australian Myth now days. It was a majestic and cunning creature similar to a marsupial Hyena

Some years ago I used to watch the program "The Lost Animals of 20th Century" on Discovery Channel and there they featured Tasmanian Tiger also. I used to note down important details of extinct animals while watching the program. I still have the diary. You just refreshed those memories. You did a remarkable job by writing such a beautiful poem on this extinct species. So thoughtful of you!!

Very interesting poem. Like how you are using poetry to bring make people aware of social issues going on, such as animal abuse.

Lovely poem! I think you really captured the disappearance of such an amazing animal. The only thing I didn't like was that you used the word 'cruel' and 'cruelly' fairly close to each other. Either use a different word or make the two lines farther apart and this poem would be perfect. Really good job! Keep writing!
