There Was A Time

There Was A Time

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

There was a time 
When we lived in peace 
Now is the time for hatred 
And bloodshed 

There was a time 
when all was well 
Now is the time to 
Say farewell 

There was a time 
When people cared 
Now is the time 
When everyone is busy 
In their own affair

Just beautiful my friend. "There was a time"-great title and first line of verses. An ode to a time that threatens to end now. I agree with Coyote, there are verses left to write by an amazing Poetess such as yourself. I offer a humble suggestion. Feel free to use/change/ignore...

There was a time
When children were safe
Now is the time
We must protect and save them
From danger

Thank you for liking ☺
This is a sad reflection of changing times... I guess you could add to it by thinking of other changes for the worse... the loss of community, the debasement of love...

The simplicity of the writing is appealing..

We had the light; now for the shadow. Mournful and resigned, acknowledging that we are in dark times. Nicely done.

Indeed we are. And we are the ones who should be bringing back light. Thanks for reviewing ☺
Dear Poet. This could be a epic poem.
"There was a time
When we lived in peace
Now is the time for hatred
And bloodshed"
The above lines are true and the sad part. Few have concern about the many wars, abuse of women and murder of innocence people. I hope you will write more. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
