Yesterday and Today

Yesterday was today Rain fell night and day It was shining all times The land was green The moon was not visited Among people, love was genuine Compassion was a heartily virtue People spoke to one another friendly No terrorism we heard No climate issues we knew Love was in our hearts Life was valued Peace was on the land No woman was raped No child was on the street But today is a different day Homeless people here and there Growing more desperate Rain has gone and people are selfish For man has become mischievous Revenge and hatred dwell in our hearts For dignity has become volatile The ecosystem is damaged Bombs and terrorism kill us WhatsApp, TV and Facebook replaced human dialogue Yesterday and today make the future We need peace, neighbors and safe atmosphere Otherwise, we are homeless We need to live peacefully In a conducive environment Poem by Mugisho N Theophile

Thank you Kyle kriticos, and I apreciate your comment. It is true that what we are living today is quite different from what we lived yesterday. The world has been changing in a negative ways regarding people attitudes towards their neighbors, the environment and mostly toward the concept of love.

I really enjoyed this poem and found it very profound, especially this statement "We need peace, neighbors and safe atmosphere Otherwise, we are homeless" Very well done Mugisho!
