We aren't lost to green an gold

As consciousness rose
 so did the shadows in men,
 until the white sun rises
 and leaves turn unfolding Zen

In the long grass of sleep we all lay
 awaiting the awakening to life,
 innocence filled our atoms
 but we breathed in being and strife 

In all the evil that’s been bourn
 perpetuating the threat of old,
 is the rotten heart of humanity
 and with stealthy legs he rolls 

As lessons of history were shared
 the sins of time have repeated,
 and the hordes filled with hate
 storm the Tara pets at our feet

Until hate is colour blind
 and all gods are held up,
 and the mantel in the flame
 is blown and fully caught 

We are lost but not in vain
 will this fight be forever fought,
 be not afraid for in our veins
 is courage breed and brought 

I have faith with sanity and time
 this blackness will fill with light,
 and tomorrows will be bolden-ed
 as purity glows crystal bright 

Watching the pictures flicker by
 scored with suffering and pain,
 it's then that i fear this world
 will never know innocence again 

I feel the pureness in the flow
 as the breezes brush my face,
 in the universe no miracle holds
 a candle to the blue of this place 

Please ignore this simple child
 polluted and poisoned by life,
 I just want to see an end to war
 before my last rays of light

    As an Australian I was completely taken in by the title. Not at all what I expected, there wasn't one mention of Aussie sports teams at all. What there was though you wrapped up magnificently with that bomb of a last stanza. Powerful stuff.

    I especially love the title on this one, Jayne. To me, it feels like though you speak of the end of times in the body of the poem, the title, reminds me of the passing of seasons... time... goes on. Awesome poem, Jayne.I am doing better, day 6 of being sick!!! Really wears ya out, so I can only imagine what 18 months could do, Dr. said it's bronchitis. yuck! never had that before. he put me on antibiotics, and i am starting to feel a little better. I miss you when you're away. love and hugs, :)

    This is powerfully expressed. This world of ours has been poisoned for far too long. It has lost much of its innocent allure, but we still hope that the future will be brighter. It's a dream to live for. // Glad to see you posting again, Jayne:) All the best. // paul

    Perfection is reserved for the Gods...we poor morals must somehow deal with the realities of life. Beautiful words expressed with the heart of a poet. Emile #7
