Are we?

Are we

Sinners or believers?

Lovers or liars?

Children of destiny?

Banes of fate?

An indespensible sun,

As is the moon.

A top hat, a suit,

Rags, ripped in June.

Diamonds glisten.

Coal will soon.


Tell the world that can't tell apart.

Melancholic Wisdom

I quite liked this, it kinda makes me think. It's like pretty philosophical. I liked the last two lines in particular, it kinda gives off the vibe that you have to stand out in a world that groups everyone together. Like a message of individuality. I liked it. Nice job as always Tangey :D

Thanks Melancholic for your kind words! You're analysis is completely on point.I grouped a lot of things together: beleiving and sinning, lovers and liars, because I've come to realize that they go hand in hand in many situations. And that someone can change these situations by standing up and being that one. I'm glad that you liked it; I was afraid it might've been a bit too vague and confusing. By the way, I'm going to be posting a short sci-fi thing soon, so come check that out when it is! :)

Sir AK87

This poem was really meaningful. It would mean a lot if you read just one of my poems. Thank you for this experience.

Ooo, a philosophical poem from the great and wonderous Tangelo! As I'm very into the whole 'secret to the universe' thing, I loved this. The last line, "Tell the world that can't tell apart", was by far the best. Love lessons of individuality and finding yourself. Still really interpretive though, so people could have different views. Don't be hesitant to post something you find vague; I'm pretty much the master of vagueness and it's worked out really well for me. lol, this was superb. Lovely job as always :)

Thanks a bunch Hanorbi :) I'm glad you liked it! I'm actually quite hesitant about philosophy now, because philosophical things don't really have to be philosophical; it's all about the interpretation, and this poem brought me to realize that.
