How The Contrast - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

How the contrast
with what went before
never calculated
what ill future years held in store

How the contrast
we had lore
and we have more
yet want we more
how the contrast

So it has come
that we lost eager
for life's love-fever
seeing this disaster
disaster after disaster
and in the heavens before
there looms more and more

I jotted down
a plan of action
plan of salvation
my hope, my calculation


Yet with all this
day after day
continues this way
a vessel that sinks
midst waves surrounding
the strong vessel grounding

With all this score
there be life's horizon
immortality suspended
and end be in store

How the contrast
with what went before
never calculated
what ill future years held in store
