Sanities To Keep And Not Leave Abandoned

We live in times many have found their minds unaccepting.
Too many have wishes they keep to feed,
On a greed and other pleasures sought to bring them peace.
Only to keep many addicted to routines.
With promises of a brighter tomorrow to come.
And too numbed they are to be stunned,
To perceive themselves victims of prolonged deceit.

And for those who have awakened,
To realities they can not resist that exist...
Those tomorrows have become yesterdays already gone.
Gone and no longer do they await escapes,
But have come to face and to share...
With others who have not abandoned their sanities.

We live in times many have found their minds unaccepting.
With wishes they keep to feed upon,
Greed and other expected pleasures...
Kept within their reach to get quick and instant fixes,
To soothe an addiction to unwavering routines.
With promises delayed but prayed on a daily basis,
For a cloudless and brighter tomorrow to come.

And for those who have awakened,
To realities they can not resist that exist...
That tomorrow they await to face and share has come,
Along with others made aware...
Of their sanities to keep and not leave abandoned,
With an acknowledgement they have been blessed...
And left mentally and physically fit,
No treasured possession could possibly satisfy.
