Tomorrow's Future Today - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Never quitting, continually being energized through
rhythms, tranquilly and vividly looking into space,
wondering about the world and what it's going through.

A timid and shy look at evil abounding everywhere, only
wanting to do away with it, not liking how it destroys
women and children with it's barbaric ways.

Totally pulling apart the fabric of innocence and purity
of everyone of them touched by evils presence, not wanting
to see it.

Hoping for God to come and take them away from this earth
forever, serenity taking us all together into the secrets
of tomorrow's future today.

    Your last stanza is poignant because you ask to be rescued and taken from the world. In King Lear one of the few good characters in that bleak play prays for heavenly spirits to come and intervene because we are self destructive:
    HUMANITY MUST PERFORCE PREY ON ITSELF /.LIKE MONSTERS OF THE DEEP. You and the Bard agree
    humanity can't save itself. Your poem as the title reveals is about seeing the future collapse already in the present
