Can’t Change Tomorrow

No respite from the insult

identical in each lack-

luster lie. You can’t quit

work to drown it out and preach

some try to open up each 

other’s eyes.  We’ve come to this

absorbing from the bed

facedown. We teach the ones be-

neath like waves on shore, high tide.

No pleasure in this ride.

Until we turn and say 

awake, awake, for the earth’s 

sake, it’s time to cry or die.

We start with what’s below our

feet, here where we meet.

Our hearts connect in pure

truth space, the human race

spiraling past like galaxies

the future not within our grasp

it’s now

it’s now

it’s now

or never.

Inspired by:  Respite, Lackluster, Identical and Lies.
