A Future Day - Poem by Sandra Osborne

I think about the future,
And I wonder about our life.
To much hate for one planet,
To much fear.

I missed the announcement
That love had died,
I missed her funeral,
I hope it was nice.

The masses cling to faith,
While the homeless
Cling to paper sacks,
Filled with empty dreams,
Fading, like old yellow newspapers,
In the rain.

In the future,
There will be a day,
When life
Will be worth more than greed;
And paper sacks,
Are just paper sacks.
I hope it comes soon.

    Good morning sandra, you are like everyone hoping for a better world
    nice people hope for a better world, bad people want to make it worse
    myself i want to make sure i have a good supply of brown paper bags
    with ruby red lips painted on them, so i can kiss them good night

    Good night sandra good nightttttttttttt
    With a lovely warmth allannnnn
