Now this is happening…. today….

Well I look around
In this ever changing World
Fast pace

People rushing
People hating
Technology striving forward
Your phone is on your face
talk crap
and this and that
on social media
fake news
fake people
fake everything…
who cares
who dares to think
that this could stink
Without a trace of love
For you neighbor
Plastic rises
Sea levels too
Not a thought
Let’s rush
Hurt pain no care
Be empathetic if you dare
Busy let’s stay busy
It helps to cover the pain
Of what we might see again
Again and again
Wars still rumbling
in parts of the World
we in the West cant believe it
nor conceive it
the cruelty of mankind
children starving
people being mistreated
will this wickedness ever be defeated
the gloss of media
the in your face news
people airing all their views
im right of course
i confidently say
as they prance and shout
every single day
to keep their head above the water
will it all be the same
or never alter
is a seed of hope that peeps through
the concrete crack
is it red or blue
the hue
of this gem
a flower
that will take away the hour
of this day…
Mankind is clever
well, well i never
but in his haste
he forgets the World around us
care for it
nuture it
no dont bother
ill make a dine
and thats just fine
ill go back to my box
thats where I live
with roses round the door
ive nothing to give
another human being
ill stay
and groan
my family
where have they gone
are they still on their phone….
oh yes…. of course….

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
