Why Are We Waiting?

By Tony DeLorger © 2013

What I see in the dull hues of in-conclusion,

is a mind bent on truth in a world determined to conceal it,

and what I can see alludes to secrets withheld,

planned obsolescent beliefs to humour and still resistance.

All this while the elite steer an alternate course,

outside the scope of cognizance for we mere mortals,

and four steps ahead of accepted paradigms,

lingering at the edge of oblivion, a calculated risk for tasking it all.

Why are we waiting for the inevitable,

bystanders on the cusp of annihilation by numbers,

chosen paths to cull, control and breed compliance,

in the new world, the revolution of the brokers.

Why do we immerse ourselves in delusions of security,

that wealth has never procured, never proved worthy of a soul,

and now belief is the pawn of the masters,

pitting one against the other, while slight of hand ensues.

Why are we waiting to voice our concerns,

happy to live in the fantasy of Hollywood,

the dreams of our hearts tainted by the feeding of self-doubt,

while the world spins to a different beat, and nature stalls.

With eyes open my heart fades,

lost in the cacophony of machinery,

lost in the ambivalence of the masses,

and I wonder how we can endue what ultimately faces us all.

Surrounded by a world out of our control, what best can we do to secure a future worth having? Become a voice.

      Yes, my friend tony-delorger, I have found the another one. A very sensational poem I am unable to comment on it except enjoying in reading this poem. Thanks for sharing it.

      Tony, I share some of the same thoughts as you. I wonder if times have changed much, since the Dark Ages, and total domination by the royal inbred power mongers..
