A hope for tomorrow

It is in this unfortunate time
Where man has no feeling and 
Death has no meaning that
We find ourselves lost and alone

We run headlong into darkness
Hiding from ourselves and what
We perceive, old lies and old lives
For our many sins we must atone

Around in circles we go, in our
Minds and in our lives, all in a day, all in a year
Never really going anywhere
The purpose not at all clear

As we look towards the light, waiting for some answer
Wondering if faith or chance will triumph
All the while in the back of our minds
Who will deliver us from fear

One day in the future, it will come without warning
Out of the clear blue sky, the answer we seek
Will resonate on the wind, giving hope and purpose
To a people in need

From a time where madness used to reign 
A new day is borne, out of necessity
And with that day will come peace and understanding
So that we no longer have to bleed

There will always be madness, but what a gift to share hope with others and be able to write, Christian. Wonderful words here. I'm so glad I live only in the NOW. The future and the past are both figments of my imagination, but here at the Soup there is already a clear blue sky ... smile ... thanks for being here!!
