Ninety Seconds To Midnight

Blank Time

Ominous trends continue to point the world to
Absolute self-annihilation. We are a threat
To ourselves so it seems. People sound the alarm
Constantly. No one listens. We do ourselves harm
By not doing so and we may come to regret
All the destructive activity that we do.

Earth experienced its hottest year on record
Only last year. There were massive floods and wildfires.
Other climate-related disasters affect
Millions of people worldwide. Why can’t we respect
Mother Nature? Can’t one of our strongest desires
Be to come to some kind of a global accord?

There’s an ever-present danger of weapons of
Mass destruction continuing to escalate.
China, Russia, and the United States are the
Leading powers. It sucks that we cannot agree
About much. Any dialogue may come too late
To save us. We’re a world quite deficient in love.

Everyone on earth has at least some interest
In reducing the likelihood of our doing
Catastrophic harm to earth and the human race.
Is there one principle that we all can embrace?
Is a  consensus on world peace worth pursuing?
Is a loving world one which we can manifest?
