An End Of The Age Of Innocence Part III

In our fast paced twentieth century world..,

We oft' have neglected to stop to smell the roses,
Oft' we used to bow our heads silently to pray,
As we reflect back to the sixties is had launched a pad to rebellion !
With a vast amount of liberal bias and thinking,

No wonder why our nation is sinking..,

Sinking amidst a cuss pool of mere morality..,
For now it is a quite different time,
A very unique but different type of day..,
An end of the age of innocence,

One hath been enlightened..,

From seeking truth,
Some fresh out of a garbage can..,
Yet for Gods' sake,
He hath such an amazing plan !

Hence, to shun the broad road,

Yet to seek to venture in the narrow..,
Such as a distant bird in flight !
You might see this creature venture out at night ?
Of the Eagle nor the Sparrow..,

It used to mean something to have a sense of common courteous..,
To hold open the door for your neighbor ?
Yet for the time being we relent and waiver..,
Would you prefer another taste of a certain ice cream flavor ?

To ponder we must be content with who we are in the inside..,

Nor, a mere fancy suit or blazing sport's car,
Life is a roller coaster..,
In what you do while busy making other plans..,
Finding solace among the height of nature.,

Such to think at what is quite simple,
As a young child reflects on his or her poster board,
Playing with their magic crayons..,
For in eternity it is such a very long time !

Take heed in what you do,

Now is the expectant hour !
What will one choose to do ?
There can be no place nor need for any compromise,
Within it's vast perpetual spectrum !

One just can't put a price tag on a genuine but unique heart !

Hence, with honest integrity..,
The time for change is today !

    the words you write are true,enough in & the 8th day the work can be done, however i do think you can be too literal in the understanding, and miss another point entirley .the world ends every split second for someone somewhere everywhere.

    Why did you post this poem in my contest.... Did you read the instructions??? Dude this is not a Sestina... I liked the poem as a free verse form but I am sorry my friend I have to disqualify it... If you write in the Sestina form than you are welcome to submit.. This free verse will not be judged as a winner.....:JP]

    Hi My Poet Friend, after the judging was complete for my contest, I decided to search for your poem (to see who wrote it) so I could tell you personally that I really appreciated you for supporting my contest. I feel sad when I have to leave poems out. Picking winners is DIFFICULT! I also wanted to tell you that your poem is very well written. It was not chosen because it addressed a different subject than chickens. However, I enjoyed reading it very much. Keep writing. Smiles, Dane Ann

    Hi Mario, this poem is beautiful. I saw it for the first time, in my Chicken Poem Contest. Is it there in error...a glitch' in the soup system? I had one of my entries in a contest vanish after being entered. Some weird things happen sometimes. I just wanted to make sure it is in the right contest. I do love it, but I can't see the connection to chickens. Just wondering. Dane Ann
