Until the end of time

My life line is within poetry 
until the end of time 
despite the minute platform it has
it is the only platform the truth is stuck on 

Until the end of time 
poetry will expose pastors who judge
by trying to speak for god
instead of letting god speak through them

Until the end of time 
poetry will be ignored 
because people idolise rappers
and poetry in rap is dead

Until the end of time 
ghetto children will be seen as criminalso
Because the people they idolise end up behind bars

Until the end of time 
the president will proclaim his achievements and not address poverty 
because his status is more important than poor people 

Until then end of time
politicians will make empty promises for votes
and leave as like a player that got what he wanted

Sure enough. Noting the trajectory of days, it is unlikely that anything will get any better, in time. I really enjoyed your poem. Love and hugs, Catie :-)
