The World Is Not Happy Or Sad - Poem by Dejan Stojanovic

The world suddenly became sad.
There was too much cheering,
Too much unsubstantiated hope;
Hopes were only dreams
Evaporating even faster;
What was needed was to build them
But we stood hypnotized,
Paralyzed by that sudden revelation,
Accusing the world, accusing hope,
Hoping to find another excuse
For another episode
Of postponed dying
Of something that had to die long ago to allow
Another episode of cheerful hopes;
But even hopes have limits
And in the new episode
The actors must face themselves.
