Loftiest of Dreams

Loftiest of dreams cast into the shadows,

What is left to hope for?

Watching what we deem civilization crumble right before my eyes

I lament days gone by.

Overwhelming sadness pervades every waking hour;

I weep, though I weep not for me, but my progeny,

They shall inherit this chaos.

We were to be stewards protecting our world for the future;

We failed…instead we rape and pillage the earth for all that it has

Treading upon its inhabitants for our own profit.

What will be left to pass down, but devastation, war and famine;

The ugliness that we as a species have so ungraciously admitted,

Dwarfing the plagues of Biblical Egypt.
