Civilization - Poem by Aufie Zophy

A world filled with oceans and land
where trees and flowers would bloom
There were animals and men and women
and then civilization started to loom

While civilization was to be something good
led by the men who were wise and always kind
but along the way we have allowed ourselves
to be led by politicians with a corrupted mind.

We built cities and streets and worked on the land
we got plenty of food and so much material wealth
but got blinded by money and means justified by end.
our peace is suffering and we damage our health

And civilization went on
We got better and better
or so it seemed

But our leaders still are fear mongers
And we let them
Our leaders are still war mongers
And we let them
For how long?

When will we see through the web
The web of deceit, of lies
When will be open our hearts
For all people in this world
To whom we are connected now

How long will it take
For the wisdom seeds planted long ago
To sprout and grow ferociously
Envelop the world with people
Who open their heart for love?

The love and compassion
That has been in this world
Everywhere and always
It is time, high time
That we get more wisdom

Let us start now to create a world
Where love reigns
A fully united world
Where taxes are used for all!
No more hunger!

A world
Where love reigns
Let us start now
A world
where Love reigns

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Love has been like a golden a thread throughout our civilization.
that was present but only we were aware of it when we searched for it.
Now the time has come to let love not longer be a mere thread, but let it be the guiding principle of all we do.
Civilization, the true civilization has yet to come.
A world wide society filled with love and compassion is on its way.
Let us enjoy the journey towards it.
Nationalism and isolationism seems on the increase
but it won't be for long.
Soon we have a wisdom revolution where unity and universal brotherhood will be celebrated. Let us all be part of it...
