Y/. And Now


Yesterday the world was cruel
And now it is kind

The day before yesterday the world was violent
And now it is full of peace

Three days ago the world was greedy
And now it is charitable

Four days ago the world was full of lies
And now it is only truth

Five days ago the world was negative
And now it is positive

Six days ago the world was ignorant
And now it is wise

One week ago the world was just a prelude
Only now we become real

    This is an amazing poem! And I mean that word (a tired, old, over-used word) in its full glory - A-M-A-Z-I-N-G - that is, an experience which opens up something closed, that releases something stalled, that fulfills something ready.
    You have made a prophetic poem that carries its own conviction. It's as if you reversed the SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION in Genesis, giving us a countdown in reverse to the world as it should be, a visionary world, a moral world, a world guaranteed to bring happiness to its inhabitants. I'm a believer! ! (Report) Reply
