Some Miracle - Poem by Lyn Paul

Just so much wrong in this world
Never to be made right

All dead
Simply for greed
They were all innocent

It is not Now
It was back then

Yet Now
It is Now!

We once thought bad language was bad

We made incredible slingshots
Threw firecrackers over the neighbouring fence
Watched the frogs climb from the septic tank

But now there is far too much more to shock us

Eyes now wide open
Sometimes wishing to close

Where will we be...
In future soon?

Can greed be turned?
There is a possibility....
If We all follow just one God
For there, ...Can only be one

The law
The killing
Police now marching with guns
To commemorate 100 Years of our Diggers

What was it all for?
Why?

We all have been a beautiful child
Now we want to protect our own.
Their future

It is no longer...
The Cowboys and The Indians
The Cops and Robbers

Now it is Life or Death

There has to be
Some Miracle

Some Beautiful Miracle Out there!

    Yes, dear Lyn, of the good and open heart, the miracle is called Hope, but even hope is being murdered in a world of insane and uncontrolled Dopes.
    This wonderful poem present in a most clear and natural way the insecurities and horror of our times, and questions our human sanity.
    Good work. If more people read this or thought about it, maybe there could be some change, somewhere somehow.
