POEM – The Stakes Have Been Raised

The stakes have been raised.

It is now or too late.

This is no crossroad.

It is a checkpoint in life.

No turning.

No diversion.

No returning.

Surely…

Slowly…

Certainly…

The decisions for our everyday

Are made by others.

They are just implemented

By our daily actions.

Peace one day

Has become a myth

A fable told to excite

The brains of the youngsters.

Life is a rollercoaster

And I pray you are not enjoying the ride.

Because you must be prepared

For the afterlife.

Its worse.

The world is sick.

We hope for good news

Yet spread the bad faster.

We pray for the best

Yet orchestrate our worst.

Surely

The stakes have been raised.

And mistakes are being made.
