2012, the Year of Change- some thoughts
2012, the Year of Change
By Tony DeLorger © 2012
Another year has passed,
and the ineptitude of men plague our lives,
like the incessant dripping of a leaky tap.
Each drop small and seemingly ineffectual,
become thunderous, echoes sweeping the globe
like a roaring toxic wind.
Each calamity, each action of corruption
resounds in our consciousness,
numbing our senses into acceptance.
We live in a toxic wasteland of compromise,
because of the power of corruption,
the self-centred greed of single minded men.
We live in their shadow,
by their will and for our own survival,
in the face of their demands, their policies.
It is not society that demands blood,
but those who in the guise of society,
suck the marrow from life to bolster their own position.
True freedom only exist within our minds,
for we are destined to pay the piper
for the deeds of darkness.
All we can do is dream with our voices
and live life true to our own values,
hoping love will overcome darkness,
and compassion will prevail in the struggle of life.
May 2012 open the eyes of the lost
and still the hearts of the righteous,
healing wounds and seeking a life of peace,
for all the creatures on this little blue marble.
