A Brighter Day

They say
That tomorrow
Starts today.

That today
Represents the present
That was passed on to us
In the past.

That the lefts of yesterday
Will always have a say
In the telling of our history.

Yesterday
Seeds of greed
Were sown Infertile soil
Growing into weeds that coil
On our crops to spoil
The good of our toil.


Today
The world is on her knees
Whilst humanity is on his ease
Ignorant in his bliss
Causing illness
and all things amiss.

Not hearing the pleas
Of a land plagued by fleas
That crossed the seven seas
Seeking to spread disease 
Onto the bees
That pollinate our peace.



They say
That yesterday
Ends today.

That today
Presents us
With the chance
To write our wrongs.

That the rights of today
Will always have a say
In the telling of our future.

That even though our history
Is clouded in misery
Our actions today
Can craft a better story-
Telling of our history.


True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and choice.

Samuel Johnson
