Armageddon's Brink - Poem by James B. Earley

Social injustice
Denouncing a man
For simply his race

Deny....the child
A decent education
...His father a job
In a plentiful nation

Pass the shelter-less
In the cold of night
No sense of compassion
To that homeless plight

..Confusion throughout
A world in disarray
When God created all
Was it planned that way

In......His image
A spiritual kinship
With a common bond

Equally creating
As He placed us here
...Universal breath
For all to share

And with that breath
Came an awesome dawning
Will there be....another sunrise
............In the morning

    The title caught my attention Jim. The message was at once vivid and exposing t the lack of humanity on this forlorn earth. Made me sigh for the future. So well and simply presented. Greetings from Cornwall U.K. Peace and love from Fay. (Report) Reply

    there is no guarantee that the sun will rise We live hopefully that, that will be the case.. just perhaps our purpose in being is to hope for improvement both personal and as a race. We may reach enlightenment at least we have to try (Report) Reply
