POEM TITLE: I am Mean as I Am Tall

I wonder if like a tree, that when I age, I will fall.

I hear nature’s cries as the beasts of my jungle stumble and crawl.

I see an awful picture towards the horizon.

But I am aware of my surroundings like sonar.

I want humanity to paint different pictures through all different spectrums, so the light reflects and reality checks them.

So, yes, I am as mean as I am tall, but if you take control of my jungle, then humanity will fall.

 

I understand humanity is pushing Doomsday closer

But I don’t believe in the fiction of luck from a 4-leaf clover.

I have a vision, a dream that touches even the blackest of the hearts,

Ones filled with nothing but coal, and his words like a punch tear him apart.

I worry that someday we’ll title the end.

I cry these oceans but only for the wicked.

I am mean as I am tall and before me, you shall stumble and fall.

 

I understand that humanity is not all that perfect, but too many mistakes, a third chance you do not deserve it.

I say that life is beautiful and bright, but the air is full of toxins. There is no hope in sight.

I used to dream about goodness, but now the world lies in hatred, no image of God, only a mural of Satan.

I try to be loyal in the face of God.

I hope that eternal life is available soon to us all.

I am mean as I am honest. I am mean as I am tall. Take off thy forest and humanity will fall.
