Generations (A Blitz Poem)


Built through love
Built through time
Time to laugh
Time to dream
Dream of days
Dream of nights
Nights of stories
Nights of songs
Songs of hope
Songs of freedom
Freedom to care
Freedom to love
Love of one
Love of all
All bound together
All surviving as one
One goal
One future
Future secured
Future withheld
Withheld through fear
Withheld through hate
Hate of the unknown
Hate fueled by fear
Fear of success
Fear of failure
Failure through inaction
Failure through control
Control thought
Control feelings
Feelings of life
Feelings of hope
Hope for tomorrow
Hope for brighter days
Days of laughter
Days of joy
Joy and delight
Joy and nourishment
Nourishment of souls
Nourishment of minds
Minds that think
Minds that plan
Plan of futures
Plan of doing
Doing right
Doing just
Just treatment for all
Just treatment forever
