Brothers, I’ve seen some
Invisible to my eyes before
A lion in my soul kept watch
For the signs, of the end of the world
Sisters, I’ve felt the fish spawning
Life on the firm branches of new trees
The sky lit in ambivalent temperatures
Solar flares that shared the
Restlessness of the times
The Environment didn’t like
How our key fit into the universe
Extinction seemed the logical
Way to press these misfits off the Earth
Brothers, I feel our hour is ticking down
Every species has its time to shine
I’ve seen some hopeless events
A world corrupt in mismanaged imaginary wealth
Some living in outrageous luxury
While the majority live in squalor
Brothers, I wasn’t born in a just world
Though I wonder if I have children
If they will have a city to live in at all
That does not bear roots of blood
Whose civil unrest won’t swallow them all.
oh, i’m so torn, this of course is brilliantly written as usual, but say it ain’t so, bro… i feel what this speaker feels sometimes too, things are really scary right now
A bunch of thugs are manipulating the world, it’s what we get for having the American Dream.
are dreams so, so bad? take out the “american” part, aren’t we all the same?
a bundle of awesomeness, u are, u are..!
Thanks NB, that’s sweet of you
You’re welcome… just telling it like it is 😉
We are so on the same wavelength. I wrote about Apocalypses today too.But differently.Yesterday’s poems were so beautiful. You are spent.This is just a feeling. As long as you write, there is hope.
