Treasure Island

Little One


Little one, little one, I see you there dreaming
What do you see? What do you see within that dream of yours?
Do you see children dying? Pointless bloodshed and infants crying?
Little one, little one what do you see?
Darkness over lands and bodies in the seas?
Hungry people, starving like you and me?

Little one, little one what are you dreaming?
Is it the future and what you'll become?
Oh little one, don't you know, there is no future for you anymore?
Your future is stolen by the choices of man.
Mankind will end with you, there's nothing we could do.
We brought this on ourselves, thinking we were gods and nothing else.

There is no future for you. Oh little one, my heart goes out to you.
Man strived for power, the cost was lives of many; but you're too young to see.
Too young to understand what's the price for greed.
I envy you little one, with that little mind of yours:
always smiling, always cheerful; without a care in the world.
I envy you, with that little mind of yours, too young to comprehend what's going on.
The downward spiral, the tragedies caused by man.
The reason there is no future.

We live in a day where wars wages still and corruption is fed to the people.
We live in a day where love has no meaning and God is no longer welcome.
We live in a day, the Earth is crying out; the reason for all earthquakes and floods.

Oh little one, little one. There is no future for you here.
In the next few years the Lord will return, the Son of God will come.
You will join many of His children for a journey home,
and that little one, your future will begin.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
