A Death of a World - Poem
Where is the world heading
When you can feel it in your bones
That change is beyond inevitable
And people are often disappointing?
What will the world be like
When intelligence is hard to come by
To shed a light of hope
And remind us everything will work out?
Change is always good,
But the transition is devastating.
Economies crumble out of control,
And safe places are hard to find.
Small comforts are denied,
And a conman hides behind
Every mask that all men wear.
Where are we going to?
And what are we doing
To ourselves and others?
Is the world of yesterday
Gone forever in the pages of history?
Will the world of tomorrow
Be worth the journey in the end?
In dark times we sometimes focus too much on the darkness around us. We do not take the time to stop and question. We have to look to ourselves in times of change. How are we contributing? What can we do to make a positive outcome? For many, the answer is to keep moving forward. For others, we need to step it up a notch if we want to see a world of tomorrow that proves worth all the turmoil to get there.
