The Universe - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

The Universe
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Sunday, February 3,2013

Break down the barriers that enslave your mind
Leave all your worries and problems behind
Don't get bogged down by the daily grind
Take the time to relax and unwind

So life has been unkind
So your debit card has been declined
So you've found yourself in a bind
And now you find yourself confined

Justice seldom fair or blind
A number you've now been assigned
All your possession's you've consigned
Nothing good left to remind

Inked your script on the dotted line
For you, the moon no longer will shine
You ate the flesh of the forbidden swine
Never mind things will work out fine

This is a warning to mankind
This is not what the divine had designed
In hotter waters yourself you will find
For a tangled line you're now entwined

All the wicked sections were outlined
Even some sectors were red-lined
So if your roads are now an inclined
Never mind for the universe remains kind

A given right to live and free will
Some take it upon themselves fleece, pilfer, and kill
Blood they feel they must spill
They find it to be a rush and such a thrill

Hatred consumed their hearts until it overflowed
For the time you have never promised but borrowed
Life never guaranteed and never to you was ever owed
Count your blessings unto you were bestowed
