We are progressing
Moving to the next phase
Will it be that much better?
Will this new world help everyone?
Or will the powerful gain all?
Can we pull together to make it work?
The song right now seems to be in discord
Dissonant factions play selfish tunes
But there is cooperation
Folk pushing positive change
Helping hands reaching out
Voices in accord
Working as one
This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. This week the words were transition and harmony but, as always, only synonyms are allowed. I chose to do a double ethree.
I don’t like to touch on politics. Hmm. I have twice now deleted a long paragraph about all of the hate and selfishness I have been seeing lately – far more than I have at any time in my life. It is a scary time, but more because of people than because of any virus. I have to concentrate on those who are helping. I have to try to support them. Do what I can. I think the majority of people do, even if the haters scream the loudest. Hopefully we, those who think society – people, all of us – is more important than any selfish short term gain, that we will help bring about positive change :)
