Solution to a Problem

One of the reasons
Why so many human problems
Are still unsolved.

Lies in the conditioning
Of the responsible
Who should have resolved.

With the advancement of education,
Satisfying our greed;
And desire for progression.

The humane values of the educated;
And rich have suffered
A moral digression.

Never-ending grief
And the pain of suffering,
Are huge emotions not felt;
Or even anticipated.

By those greedy and selfish;
Who with compassion
Have never dealt.

How can the world’s problems be recognised
And solved as our own.

When all were created
By a greed,
Which no one will disown.

Academic minds can be conditioned;
To recall, reason and construct argument.

To offer intelligent dispute,
With pomposity;
And overblown sentiment.

Producing questionable academics
Within this unfair world.
With clouded minds, stony hearts
And souls sold;
In exchange for gold.

Most do not even
Accept the Almighty God;
And cull their evil acts.

Misusing knowledge to further
Their own materialism
Like rats.

They grasp every chance
To steal power, education
And position.

By the sponsor
Or hire of themselves
For easy and rich proposition.

Human problems are
Not even considered;
To require any true understanding.

If all dilemmas are solved,
For the benefit of the poor;
Then the corrupt will end up hurting.

Therefore they remain downtrodden
And injured through
The whim of the bad.

Forced by their cruelty
To become poorer, weaker
And enslaved to the mad.

Politicians with already
Obscene hoards of wealth.

Distribute their images of sleaze
While wishing to grab power;
They raise up and cast down,
Whoever they please.

Giving up your self-greed,
In an effort to understand
Human problems is a must.

In empathy suffer,
As much as anyone else;
So that a solution can be found
And evil is bust.

Otherwise humanity will continue
To be strangled alive;
By people like you.

Who at the present time
Live dissolute lives;
While trying to avoid
God’s all-seeing view.

The way to spiritual awakening
Will be known to you all.
Following which,
We all can live happy
Without fear of unknown goal.

About this poem

People responsible for finding solutions to human problems must isolate themselves from self-greed and should identify themselves with the suffering people. Accepting the worst of conditions for oneself and living through the experiences of problems must be the prerequisite for taking on such an appointment. Non-cooperation in allowing evil to continue must be accepted as the first step towards obtaining the solution. Only then can the right of people to demand social justice be the safeguard for man-made problems.
