My poem: Blind
Hey everyone. This is my first attempt at a poem. I generally stick to short stories, essays, and narratives, but I was told I may be good at poetry so here it goes. Also, for anyone who actually knows about poetry, enlighten me as to the generally accepted way to construct one

To see the world through enlightened eyes,
To understand the withered trees and barren lies
Calls for 'membrance of olden times
Times of laughter, joy, and little care
But today, the darkness will always snare

Busied minds ignore the lives of all
While hellfire freezes yet planets thaw
Questions buzz through all with vision,
But others care not; their lives have not risen
No, not risen from their ignorant places,
They can never win these violent races
For those are human, and cannot change
But should they? Will it help?

Perhaps they're better this way, they're useless to us
Though, emotion may save them, but only just
But even so, best not let them rot,
Fore an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind
Yet with no sight, we're all of one kind
