Ode to Wants and Needs and Lots, lots More

We stand at the brink of a new age when our choices and our actions will take us up or down. Into hell or heaven. It is always a choice so choose wisely.

Endless searching

There never seems an end
To all our wants and prayers
Yet if would but look around
See we would
That neverending is the flow
Of all we really need

Darkling the skies so far above
O'er golden fields ripe with corn
Their heavy heads hang low
And so it seems
The fate of man it too
Hangs in balance twixt earth and sky
Twixt heaven and hell

and so it is

Nothing, None

For those who would extinguish life
The ones who stand and trumpet loud
Their voices shrill
Whilst those who stand upon the brink
Of old and new
Not knowing which to choose
Which way to go

The temptress clothed in rainment sheer
Watches all with
Eyes so green
Eyes of greed
Eyes of power
She their instrument of choice
She the one sent to destroy
All that is good in man

Leaving him a blank slate
Upon which can be written in blood
Ye are Nothing
Ye are None

Woe's Tale

A tale of woe this may yet seem
For all who empty are inside
For others who soar into the heights
Who sense the very will of God
Who know of feelings quite sublime
And know they truly are Divine

It is merely a reflection
A pondering on what could be

Seeking the Heavenly Realms

The time has come
To choose who ye will follow
A fallow land it can become
Unless we change our ways
And gaze once more upon the sun
And not into the dreary depths
The nightmare realms
Dark underground deep
Filled with creatures of the night
Who never see the light of day

Glorious sunbeams reaching out
To stroke us with their loving rays
Each one a signal from the Gods
Who on the Sun do dwell
Waiting for us to turn our faces up
Our eyes to seek these heavenly realms
Where we can once again abide

Well done, cnwriter. An interesting poem. (By the way, I did not mean that you were firing pot shots; I meant those who do, whoever they are.
