These Dark Days

It's so easy for them to forget
Whilst it's out there casting its net
Trawling to mould their fates
To take them to pearly gates

Had God finally forgot
Abandoned his creation to rot
Condemned by those who sinned
Left scattered by the wind

If only they'd paid more attention
Heard all those pleas that mention
And looked before they leapt
As the world around them slept

Instead of acting suicidal
All it took was being mindful
Helping the needy by being there
Instead of grasping, just to share

Before they see the final curtain
Towards a future that's uncertain
What have they finally learned
As their world before them burned

Along the frenzied seas of woe
Lay beaches where the masses flow
Drenched in disregard everywhere
Where drowning eyes can fix their stare

As they struggle to remain sane
Can it ever be the same again
A return to gratuitous health
On a journey to discover self

They cling to hope with all their might
That day may come to end this night
Through noble acts deserving praise
An end will come to these dark days

Thank you for your kind comments LightAngel & SW. :tu::)

It has been a while and like some ancient volcano, stuttering back to life with a cough of smoke, I have have finally written something after a long period of preoccupation with family matters and moving home. I admit I've written better things in the past, but maybe starting to write again is just the tonic I need at this current time, a kind of therapy if you like.

I have missed you all on UM and it is great to be back.B)

Art always reveals an aspect of the self one way or another. However, we will all see your poem differently, and that's part of the magic. :)
