The Last Great Day - Evil

10/13/12 ----------------------------------------- “Evil is an ever present fact of life" But one day, evil will become a thing of the past Do we really want a world without evil? As for me, I am sick of it Can you believe the pain and sorrow flooding this world? Strumming heartstrings—doing nothing The bad keeps them excited The evil leaves me frightened I can’t wait for the Last Great Day The end of the damn-age Where everyone will have their last glimpses Of the evil we have suddenly learned to embrace Healing the minds of so many will not be easy But I am willing to heal the evil Rather than willing to feed it

    Laura, Once again, we find ourselves trapped in the Holiday Season. And, hear I am stopping by to say Hi and to wish you a Merry Christmas once again sincerely from my heart. Loving each moment I found comforting here on the soup. Thank you for any comment or support you have offered now or in the past. Love always & forever ~ PD

    Your words are so true here Laura.The more you allow it to grip you,the easier it is to pull you in.I feel sad for all the people who simply say."If you can't beat'um,join'um." "Or just learn to accept it" They have no idea what they are giving up!

    Maybe you could feed evil with a fist - would you rather rescue evil from itself or simply tell it to go live somewhere else? Maybe I'm being silly today - I really like the dialectic in this poem Laura - evil provides me with opportunity to be heroic, so, I will not displace it from the playground - J.A.B. %
