“The Race Worth Winning”

These egregious times we live in,
when blood pours
like a river from an open wound,

where trust is a barren land,
humanity is the desert
with our parched lips we thirst for apathy.

Yet what we receive is a dark hand
across our very souls,
leaving us to believe hope is a fading light.

Is there hope, a beacon in the sky,
as stars shine brilliantly
so should our humanity for society.

For we are the last  true bastion
of a wayward mankind,
that wondered in a barren ancient desert,

searching for the meaning of existence,
learning to taste bitterness
to discover the sweetness of human life.

Hopefully a fierce rage of rain
drowns our empathy,
so we can surface as a complete race.

I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
