Poem: They would easily say, see you in a few thousand years!

Updated on January 3, 2012

They would surely say,

We would check with you

again, in a few thousand years.

Is that really what

mankind wants?

The greed that

he has build up

Makes him one

who always want

to be the only man

there is.

Shows no respect!

Yet still he needs

one of me!

He also needs

one of you!

The truth is

He selfishly needs

One of every body

To help him through.

Why can't we see?

Learn from the pages

of our own history.

There In the Bible

the book of 2nd Timothy

Verses 3:2 it says clearly

We shall be lovers of

our own selfish selves.

Sounds like it's comimg

from someone who knew us

long before we even

knew ourselves.

Maybe trying to offer help?

That same man

was created to be his

fellow man’s shadow

We have to feed each other

give our brother that

vital information he needs

one man could never

fulfill that that obligation!

Why would he even

attempt doing it on his own.

Without the next man,

It's just a matter of time

before he takes off, run

He's planting bad seeds.

Every man got a right

To be his own actor

Playing his own part

In mankind big show.

He definitely

got a right to decide

his life' own destiny.

You are your brother's keeper

he lives your shadow.

By what other measurement

could someone get to know

whether he must jump high

Or do same as before

Stay on the down low?

There is no Crusoe

Not another man Friday

To look for out here.

No man has that right

To tell another man

What his rights are,

He shouldn't dare.

without any doubt

Man was put here

to unite.

Any man that

would know this!

Yet comes up on his

own kind

still wanting to fight

Can only be a fool

who has no desire

To work on making

good with his life

He must then be

allowed the pleasure

To live by himself.

How can anyone

with proper wisdom,

then turn so much around

go on to then think .

That we were put here

on this earth

only to have a fight

then back to the dirt

Then how can we be

the most Intelligent

How can we be?

Earth is only a dot

in this Universe

There are trillions

similar, in this infinity

Possibly looking

at earth imagining

incredible beauty?

There are places out there

mankind would never see

So if this is only a test

Then what do you think

those who are testing us

are really thinking of humanity.

Would they see us as

A confused bunch?

In great multitudes

Their own kind is starving

Can't get from their brothers

and sisters a piece of food

They can call lunch?

They can rightfully say

this group have

not as yet learned to live

Those that are wealthy?

mostly all are his

Yet still it seems that

what the others have

are belonging to wealthy

man’s as well.

What will they say?,

They would all say,

We would again

check with you

In a few thousand years!

      Thanks you "AE" that's exactly how I pictured it before setting down to write it. I figured with everything that they are saying , still we must stick to what we have. Whether we came from a much more advanced civilization still we have our own eyes and mind. And there lies not one substantiated reason to move away from.

      We see the wars , and still more greed.

      And I have noticed one great consistency in all their works , and that's the lack of what makes us smile and enjoy ourselves and sleep quite well at night.

      That's being satisfied and content with our everyday lives.

      Always looking forward to what's next for you dear lady "AE"

      The pictures tell the story that you portray so well. The rich man cannot survive alone..He needs workers.. and what will we have in a thousand years? Hopefully people will come together and trust God to deliver us from the evil of greed..Thank you Sky...

      Thanks brethren Frank, greatly appreciated. One day when I grow up little more I am going to learn to make comments live in you after reading , that's yours brethren.

      couple years ago, I had this friend ,from my homeland , hope you remember lol. well Trinni is a giveaway.

      He was same age as myself , owned a few buildings in Brooklyn. NY. His mother, she was my great friend, loved me as a son. I was keeping her son in check, because he was not a great drinker. I was the opposite. Momma retired and went home life was as good as she planned it, however she took sick and died. He went home under that pressure and decided to have a few drinks on arrival , before he could even get to his mother , he got shot by the police and killed.

      I have only learned , what my parents have forever told me , never put for tomorrow , that which I can do today.

      See the things that I write ,they must all eventually end up in my birthplace . So there is work to be done, especially for the children.

      Hope everyone who reads understands what must.

      Thanks brethren.

      Now I know that I am not alone in this struggle , that will be selfish and going against that is good.

      Thanks you sincerely Cardisa it's great to be backed up in some of those individual feelings that could sometimes send you to wonder what can I do to not see another suffer , for lack of a belief of something that I may have of know , so it's a given that we must share whatever we think/know that we have.

      Greatly appreciated , when you come up having you stop by and comment.

      Yes you may not be directly involved , but !

      As you say, and call it what you think it is , just don't ignore it, Bob would say shame on us!

      Sin has caused a separation of mankind and only we can fix it.

      We were put on this earth to unite and replenish the earth, not fight each other. Sin has caused a separation of mankind and only we can fix it.
