Signs of the Times
As published by The World Poetry Movement

So much turmoil in this place…wherein lies the human race.
All’s connected, all is one, yet still the threads are come undone.
We’ve dug ourselves in oh so deep —
Our mother earth, oh how she weeps.
The choice is ours to save our race, though serious issues must be faced.
And first of all, the place to start..we all must search inside our hearts…where peace begins, before it can flow..and spread to others to flourish and grow.
So many don’t see this, they’re fueled by hate…and greed and envy and the need to dictate.
The quest for “more” by cynical minds…they’re too blind to see all the signs of the times.
Only we can change it, with conscious thought, and by treating others, the way that we ought.
Its a global issue we all need to do, necessary by all so the message gets through.
Something so simple yet oh so deep, for what we sow we truly shall reap.
To acknowledge our ties to each other is key…for the sake of our planet and humanity.
No matter who you are or whence you came
Inside us all, we are One and the same!
~ Shady
