A Lonely Violin - Original Poem + Golden Era Ramble

in #poetry9 months ago (edited)

Nowadays people pay more attention to what it means to live well. Globally, they are more concerned about living a quality life, no longer focusing solely on its duration. Being a burden to others is an outcome that many would prefer not having.

The cyclic history has taught us that when bubble bursts, there is a crisis period following right after. In this golden era, the technology has advanced, allowing us to use data, knowledge and innovation to our advantage. Therefore the average human life span shifted from 29 to 72 years old. They predict that it will extend up to 82 by the end of this century.

Today's interests are how to live independently and how to enjoy a good health while having high levels of happiness and satisfaction. We question how happy, meaningful and fulfilled lives are. Although our happiness rapport scores higher than ever on Cantril's Ladder, we haven't yet achieved sustainable living. Why?

Have we really overcome the three main sources (disease, poverty and war) responsible for the human suffering? Or have we traded them for something else?

For how long are we going to turn a blind eye to this system that failed us? What will our children say about us to their offsprings? That we were those who took away their future just to fill up our pockets? That we were so self-absorbed and that egocentrism blinded us?

Hi Gabriela! You're sweet! Thanks for stopping by!

That's a really great poem with a lot of depth in it :)

Glad you enjoyed reading it! Have a great day!

Lovely poem and thoughts.

Thanks for the read and comment @redheadpei!

Much food for thought here @lymepoet, a beautiful poem!

Nice to see you here @lizelle! Thank you!

Ah! So at last we meet the excellent @lymepoet. Lavi Picu sounds like a poetic name and we wish you all of the best my friend.
Sadly the world's prosperity teachings are leading everyone into a dead end road and the planet pays for our efforts that we have named progress.
That "Lonely Violin" will continue to scream at deaf ears that are filled with dollars and the poor will continue to suffer.
Blessings!

Nice to see you here! I still have hope for the future. ;0)

My pleasure and hope is a very good thing to have my friend!
Blessings!

My pleasure and hope
Is a very good thing to
Have my friend! Blessings!

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

A beautiful poem... poetry isn't really one of my favoured art forms, I do find it quite confusing... but I did enjoy reading yours, and the thoughts behind it.

I see you've incorporated some of the changes I suggested, and I think it flows much better now.
Good stuff @lymepoet

Thanks, Jerry!

Glad to help, your welcome ☼
