THE WORLD ABYSS

Just at the end of the rope
I sighted a green light
A flicker of hope
A possibility of flight
I refused to just mope
To give up without a fight
This shining green light
Had renewed my hope

Providing me with more rope

I fanned its flames
The smoke blinded me
So I called out names
Hoping someone would help me
The green light burned bright
Yet it eluded me
I fought the darkness with all my might
But vanities hindered me

I held on tightly to the rope

My last chance and hope


Looking to the east
I see confusion brewing
Looking to the west
I see trouble stewing
The south
Ravished and wrecked
The North
Opposite stages and sets

The green light shines
But majority can not see
Instead they dine
In iniquity
One two …two thousand and three
Finally people are joining me
Fanning till it bursts into flame
Yet the response to the green light remains the same
How can one kindle in men?
The hope of living again
Can an eagle listen to a hen?
Can I change the world with my pen?
