Wish (GBE 85)

Wish.
To end the hate
The meaness
The greed
The brokeness
Of humanity
Before
Humanity sails
Over the cliff.

    1. Thank you. The human condition towards destruction seems to be universal. It's like we know how destructive we are and want to atone.

  4. I was going to write "Amen" and then I notice Brenda stole my sentiment. This was well stated and to the point. I hope your wish comes true.

  5. The moral cliff is an important one, for sure. I fear falling off this one much more than any other. As a country, we must begin, one human at a time, to make a change. Being kinder, being less selfish and remembering always we are one of many and are never alone in this world.

    I love this so much, my favorite of all your writings to date.

    It says so very much with so few words and it's so vital.
