SET THE FUTURE AFLAME

SET THE FUTURE AFLAME


Children:
Glorifying drums of hope
Undying sparkles of wisdom
Fortifying steps of eternity
Glittering dreams of tomorrow’s
Realities! 

Your innocence 
Your truthfulness 
Your honesty
Your purity
Your lack of past,
I worship

For that, 
I yearn
The time for you 
To stop,
Your advance to 
Impede,
Your march to an
End to bring,
Before 
You reach the 
Treacherous cliffs:
Of blame
Of deceit 
Of duplicity 
Of deception
Of immorality

THUS

Pious 
Your feelings
Your thoughts
Your beliefs
Your spirituality
Will remain

FOR

The sacred torch, 
Of
"The New Loving World"
To carry on
And with that
Your unblemished 
Future 
To set AFLAME!

    We have to keep talking on these things for when we don't they will die!

    Very moving piece! I fear we will not see a loving world during our life time. It seems each successive generation is doomed to repeat the mistakes of their fathers all the while thinking they are so different.
