Unknown Future

Unknown Future

A Poem by C. Rose

I wrote this on the morning of 01/01/10. As I looked out my window and thought about what would come in this new decade. These words came into my heart and poured out onto the page.




Should we dare believe we are upon our enlightenment?


Can we hold our hopes and dreams accountable to our environment and reality?


May we become stronger in mind and spirit so that we may shed the vulgarities of the flesh?


With compassion.

With honesty.

With courage.


We shall embrace the impossible peace and cradle it in our arms.


We will forgive our trangressions of yesterday to broker peace for tomorrow.


We may choose to bring together and unify the spirit of all mankind to pursue a greater path to a destiny unknown.

Very intense poem. The desire towards the coming up year that hides the suspense of our unknown future has been bought out in the form of words in a very beautiful manner.

Thanks for sharing.
