Distant View

Distant View


Pondering tomorrow, ensconced within

Mixed cocktail of hope and fear

Hope for better tomorrows

Dreading nothing will truly change

Peering through the mire of today

Murky resolves disregard sanctity of life

Quality of character awashed with self importance

Youth's minds saturated with technology

Human contact seen through obscured screen

Dedication to one's word diminished by rule of law

Distant view upon the shores of time

Waves lapping at the shore, pulling the sands of time

Eroding the true foundation of family and values

Yet Hope for better tomorrows a glimpse

Seen in a newborn child suckling at life

Hope springs forth with a prayer upon my heart

That newborn will have life liberty

And the conviction to pursue their happiness.
