In The Not So Distant Future - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Can you hear me
can you see me
can you feel me
listen to what I have to tell you

I'm from the year 2022
don't be afraid
please don't be scared

A coalition government is trying to merge
frantically shape-shifting into something
that resembles the human form

Fragments of breath
traces of life
hearts beating

They will find you

    Wonderful poem. The greed will crash down like an avalanche of snow, melting in the lake, leaving behind lofty peaks and hills filled with the greenery of wisdom and kindness. (Report)Reply

    Fragments of breath wonderfully traces life. The beauty of beating of heart can be heard when we feel the beauty. When we can see the things of righteousness. A brilliant poem is very interestingly penned.10 (Report)Reply
