Final Days

Forgive me world,
These days we kill each other,
Children die in slums dear father,
Women get no respect, they falter,
Men on street hate our color,
You and me, we ignore each other
Where do we go where do we gather

Forgive me world,
Yesterday I saw a man die,
He didn’t even put up a fight,
A fallen angel on the lonely street,
I sat with him 'till the night,
I am victim too but I didn’t cry,
This disease, it's days has no light,

Forgive me world,
These days we know no love,
We hide our feelings just to survive,
We paint pictures dark and lone,
We cry silently tearing apart inside,
They never stop to listen, these people,
Our lives have no direction, no purpose.

Forgive me world,
Tonight I kneel to you and pray,
Not to the God that I don'’t believe,
Someday we will all succumb and fall,
Our troubles and sorrow are many,
You are our savior in these final days,
When we lost our touch in the senseless night.

Hi thanks for dropping in..
Very well put.. The world is going through a mega crisis..
Apart from the tsunamis and earthquakes, these countless wars for the greed of power in the name of democracy are worsening the situation.. Lets us hope that the spirit of humanity escapes unscathed from these series of catastrophes.
AMEN.

This writing is very very good and very very true, sorry to say, and I'm surrounded by people that just don't seem to care about anyone but themselves..but they are afraid and sad also..sad sad sad..but must not give up hope..we must not or we will not survive..must be brave speak up from time to time reach out even if rejected..hard call, difficult situation here on earth.

May the Angels be around us all whispering for us to reach out love one another and stop letting fear control us. It takes a lot of courage to take risks. I hope this girl you spoke of comes into your life..and you into hers..:o)

Thanks for dropping by my blog a while back.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
