A World Forsaken

Passerby's pass me by
Not a nod nor a 'hi'
Think back to the days of old...
Imagine children walking these same streets smiles and greetings fill the city; going to play not to work. All the time in the world so irrelevant now. No watch will be upon a single wrist, life lived so lightly. Laughter leads us love paves the way. Peace struck the world, no more war no more crime no more. No more suicide no more terror no more. No more segregation no more discrimination no more stereotypes, racism, chaos, and hate no more! and suddenly, in the blink of an eye an inevitable happening instantly foresakes this place, this world. Those children who had it all figured out without figuring at all 'grew up' and this world was lost left to the boundless confinement of imagination never to be reality.
