The Awakening of a Golden Town

The Awakening of a Golden Town

A Poem by Eve

There comes a time in everyone's life where we all need to change.


Because the world is blind,

I decided to see.

I thought it to be about time

that I stepped into the light.

When I took a glance around the world,

what I saw did not surprise-

people dying,

children crying,

and people with nowhere to go.

Yet out of the corner of my eye,

I saw something odd.

Something that was different.

Something that was strange.

In a small corner of the world,

the streets are made of gold.

People eat everyday,

and everyone has a home.

Though the rest of the world is blind,

this place is by far the worst.

They are not blind.

No- they see it all.

These people chose to ignore,

and they chose to be deaf.

They ignore those crying for help-

Those who need to be saved

Then I realized something awful.

This horrific town

was the place I was raised-

The place I knew as my home.

We are the selfish.

We are the deaf.

We are blind to all others.

We can no longer ignore

what has become of the world.

We can no longer pretend

that the world is still full of light.

We can no longer forget

and turn our backs on our brothers and sisters.

No one is going to change

unless we open their eyes.

They must be awakened to the dark.

They must fear the dark

and destroy it.

seems pretty nice, but ending such a poem with "we decide to change" does not really give me the feeling that there is an awakening
