All through human history, humanity goes through periods of change, a shift in its story-line, either a change to better or worse- we are witnessing such times.  Our role as individuals, as well as our responsibility, is in what we do with it…what we do during such times.

The ground is shaking and trembling

Beneath my feet as I stride.  Stars are

Falling from above.  Dark is the hour

But, I sense the dawn struggling as

The light is trailing…I hear wailing

Screams all around.

 

Shrills of souls in agony, wandering

Yet not lost.  Searching, I join them

Looking for Justice, yearning for freedom

Finding none.  So far, the hope is yet

Kindled, a flame that flickers weak

But steady-beneath the ashes, under

Frost.

 

I hear callers of temptations, seducers

To give up the search.  Sirens alluring

Calling for segregation, calling me to

Serve myself-leaving the rest behind.

Rest, indulge, and sleep-I hear their

Flute.  I see their flaming pit of fire

Sparks but no light.  Darkness is their

Call, darkness surrounds their flame.

 

I go back to those who call for justice

I go back to the wandering souls.  I hear

Truth in their words, I sense goodness

In their claims.  Surrounded with so much

Evil, we push through and through.  Together

We will reach, together-hope is born anew.

 

Light is finally pulling through.

After a hard and painful labor,

A new morning is born.  Darkness

Defeated, victory to those who are

United, together we made it.  Love

Binds us, and disdain to injustice

Pulled us with force undefeated.

This much I know.

  1. Sadly there are those in all walks of life, followers of religions or not, that have turned their backs on the main root of religions and being human. That is lifting up those who are below you and showing charity and love for others. They hold their wealth and possessions sacred and support of a mentality of not wanting to work hard and then have to give up a piece of what they believe to be theirs. Getting ahead on the backs of others.

    But, there are people in this world who are not blinded by this rat race.
