Dying world, dying happenings
Craziness, wickedness, laziness,
Changing greener pastures to adventures
I behold everything, i don't need to be told,
Nothing can be trusted, nothing is committed
These indeed is death, this is a dying world.
The leaders are not our dreams, depending
On them is nay.
The glory men love so much, fades away
Like cube of sugar in the tea,
It so happens because glory is meant for the creator,
Who gives water and air.
I behold hope for those who are upright,
For they alone will smile, when others are
Hopeless, hopelessness brings fearfulness,
There after, something worst than danger.
These things i see,
These things i know,
Indeed the world is dying.
As Carolyn Devonshire would put it, "i fear for the future of the world"
