Sensory Overload

20 Sep


By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The land so foreign

The people so different

The beautiful birthplace of man, reduced to an eyesore of rubble

So much promise

So much potential

Swindled by deceit and lies

Old powers fall

New regimes rise

Rouge factions spew evil from their mouths

The use religion as a catalyst for destruction

Innocent lives of mothers, fathers, sons and daughters

Lost to senseless bickering and endless lies

The sham of progress motivates the politics of the situation

The new breed of terror pounces on the opportunity

Thoughts of change are trounced by words of hate

Will the violence ever end?

Will change overcome old thinking?

Millions of years from the past

Millions of years till the future

The times of the present determine our fate

    I agree with you, the times of our present really do determine our fate. Now its up to what are we going to do about our present. Nice and thoughtful.
