We are the seeds of a dying wind—
Brought to life by blossom bursts,
cast before the eyes of parents & cruelties
rationalized by love and thirsts,
thrown into a world of chaos and atrocities.

We are the seeds of a dying wind—
In the spray of day-dew, a slow dance;
shall Fate’s hand cast us near?
We move without consent: its chance
that we, seeds, come to fear.

We are the seeds of a dying wind—
Graceful children in the governing day
move through the sky abandon,
“Find me,” one calls out, happy and gay;
He is the first of us to fall,
his descent is future of us all,
thus [we]watched his death with glee:
an odd mixture of death and hilarity;
A falling seed named Abandon.

All not saved will be lost.

We are the Seeds
We are a new hybrid seed
sown in a time when everything is changing
Dynamic characters are we,
living in our own metamorphoses

Siah, this poem truly reached me. I believe that our generation is one that can and must bring tides of change to this world.

"A falling seed named Abandon"
worth the read for that line alone, evokes a mixture of recklessness and potential, nihilistic excess and unbridled creativity… that is the knife edge on which youth balances… thrilling, but also terrifying…

nice to have you back Siah, you and those thought-provoking stand-alone lines.

Thanks for the comments girls. i've felt that these days we (the newer generation) have forgotten the tasks and chances given to us, or as they say, we are the generation abandon.

response to 'a dying wind'
Content clear and concise- clearly accessible. Very touching, where hope's seeds have design- death and hilarity, which without doubt, is irony- abandonment. Don't hold back on perfection- bravo!
