My Vision Unrealised

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Intent on change,

my thoughts bluster their way

through the crisp reality

of a world committed to reticence.

Not one will stand,

miss a step,

compromise for the common good.

Without change,

there can be no movement,

just repeating what led us to here.

How dire our circumstance,

how little time we have to remedy

our misguided greed and deluded thinking.

And still, how many of us,

accept compassion and a loving heart

rather than the trite and superficial

life of materialism.

I believe in humanity,

in the possibility of realising potentials,

but unless each one of us choose this path

and reject the trappings of life

rather than what matters,

where shall we be

when life tires of us.

Who of us will then regret,

see the truth before the flower,

dried and malnourished,

wilts, and ends its path of beauty.
