A poem about our world's condition today.


There once was a time,

when all was well.

That was once upon a time,

before all went to hell.

 

Families were families,

and friends were friends.

Now we're just enemies,

and all to bitter ends.

 

Can't stand you,

can't stand me.

Now we all fall,

and no ones free.

 

Press me down,

to lift you up.

Live to frown,

at an empty cup.

 

Live and let live,

but not anymore.

Die and let die,

as red blood pour.

 

There may be a time,

when all is well.

Fears and death left behind,

but only time will tell.

This seems to present a look at how society seems to run today. I hate you and you hate me...we won't feel happy until we spill blood today. This piece has a conscious all of its own and the words eat at a reader to understand in word play what is directly in our face. All we have to do is turn on the news once during the day and the prose will give way a meaning. I really enjoyed this piece. Stumble upon list I would like to go. Do you mind if I share a link?
