My modern society is hurting,
suffering from a plague worse then death,
the horrific illness is ignorance.
In a society that respects and praises materialistic possessions and things,
and  where we shun intelligence and reason nothing can arise,
all progress is halted. 
We are stuck in a void of failure.
As humans we are the most obscure entities created in our linear world,
a place where a mans worth is measured by his wealth,
and the blood of a terrorist is worth more then the ink of a scholar,
yet we are given a great weakness,
this flaw is a strange and irrational thing....emotions.
These destructive ideas are what will cease the advancement of mankind,
and will lead to our most certain end.
Where morals and teachings are what determine what we will be in our minuscule lives
we are forced to satisfy our own greedy needs,
then to focus on the advancement of our species,
and so there is nothing left for us to look forward to,
but the controversial ideas of a radical thinker.

  15. The punctuation of the poem is rather interesting, if you pause and stop and commas and periods respectively it flows a lot different out loud.
