” THE EYES OF HOPE ” ~by ‎Martin Gedge‎


 

 

POEM ” THE EYES OF HOPE ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, child and closeup

Behind the eyes of every child

there lies the certain hope

a future sign we must define

that helps the earth to cope

for through it all we took the ball

to sail this missing boat

and burned the trees and soiled seas

to keep ourselves afloat

and in the wreck of every speck

the right to carry on

to kill for sport and to distort

the fact that we belong

and finding peace from this disease

to make our planet strong

to pick the sticks among the pricks

and fix what we did wrong

to understand from birth of man

we seek the common goal

but face the truth and leave the youth

to pay for what we toll

it’s plain to see that soon to be

is out of our control

no shame for us to even blush

to flush the toilet bowl…
