May be an image of flower

When I was young, The future stretched endlessly before my bewildered eyes, Reaching as far as the horizon of infinity Thus Making me feel invincible and immortal. Life was an enjoyable experience for me back then For At every moment she was revealing to me, one after the other, her many marvels. No surprise that I was infatuated with life's beauty, and her Many challenges so When I was invited to follow her adventurous ways I did not hesitate at all, on the contrary, I rushed forward and became one of her actors on the central stage Thus I turned into her most enthusiastic devotee, So I dared to dream to change the world: To fight the evils that made society suffer To eradicate hate To obliterate wars To eliminate hunger To establish justice To bring peace, and To irrigate the tree of love in Man's heart. For decades I gallantly fought these formidable opponents but To no avail. The time has past and I am not anymore an actor on The central stage. I have become one of the innumerable spectators of life With no strength to keep up the struggle. Now, I can only pray, Pray to God to send fresh troops that are: More courageous than I More daring More determined More unafraid For The final victory to be achieved And Good over evil to prevail! © Demetrios Trifiatis 02 May 2021

There is so much evil in our world but we mustn't let it win, even prayer is mightier than the evil sword. Tom
