Danger's Edge - Poem by Sandra Feldman

Where are you?
All seems to crumble
To be falling apart!
What is,
Should not be
And what shouldn't,
Seems sustained
By strange, almost
Inhuman noises,
Gaining ground
Positive sound.

As the waters of sanity,
Evaporate and narrow
"Twenty First Century! "
Are you our nightmare
Our worst case scenario?
Where all seems futile
Where beauty fumbles
Mortally wounded,
By indifference,
And sorrow?

I feel as though
We're swimming
In an Aquarium,
Long, dark and narrow
With our humanity wilted,
Our brains tilted
And no Hope in tomorrow.

Topic(s) of this poem: strange, time, worry

    Overwhelmed we find no lighted path but poetry always provides a path of comfort and release even when we are imprisoned by life's perceived dangers. Thank you Sandra for sharing this excellent poem. (Report)Reply

    The terrifying threat of the
    invisible enemy makes us all
    firm in faith to overcome this
    health hazard. An excellently
    inked poem, dear Ma’am Sandra...10+❤️
