Poem by Larry Samson
SAVING MANKIND IS REALLY ON MY MIND,
IT IS THE TIME TO HELP SAVE MANKIND.
BEFORE EVERY PERSON ON THE EARTH IS IN A BIND,
KNOW THAT YOU COULD BE HELPING SAVE MANKIND.
THE ECONOMY, ENVIRONMENT, AND EDUCATION TOO.
IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND DO.
IT IS UP TO EACH OF US BEFORE IT IS MUCH TOO LATE,
SAVING MANKIND DOES NOT NEED TO BE UP TO FATE.
Poem by Larry Samson
As the lockdowns begin again we all grow weary,
And in our lifetime there is really nothing so eerie.
We sit more often staring at the news,
Especially those who have the blues.
Many good times in the past are so far away,
The difficult present appears to want to stay.
Who can say what the future will be,
All we can do is wait patiently to see.
The virus spread like a speeding freight train,
It didn't stop for a minute and caused much pain.
Like a giant waterfall thousands of feet tall,
It was filled with fear and affected almost all.
Some were asked to wear a mask,
That was not such an easy task.
Where you go and what you do,
Is now different for me and you.
What are we thinking when we gather together?
Sometimes there is no space for even a feather.
It is about what we need to rearrange,
And consider what we have to change.
Rather than thinking daily about doing nothing,
We each need to have goals and do something.
The future is so very different for us now,
Some don't know what they want or how.
More than a few find it difficult to cope,
Yet they really have not given up hope.
They know someday the future will be bright,
If they follow good protocol and do it right.
Some children are told not to go back to school,
Kids stay at home to learn and think it is cool.
Each day seems like the one before with nothing new,
There are those who feel they are in a cage at a zoo.
Almost all thought it was not in the air,
As this would be too much to bear.
This virus came out of the blue,
Nobody first knew what to do.
They said it would go away very soon,
Like you or me walking on the moon?
We were told we are all in the same boat together,
That really did not make most of us feel any better.
Unusual thoughts come to me in the middle of the night,
I really struggle with them as if I'm in a very bad fight.
It seems at times I am in a bad dream,
But I am awake and want to scream.
What am I going to do today that will make any sense?
It is really hard to discover because I am so very tense.
We all need to be much more kind,
It is very important and on my mind.
If failure were impossible what would you do?
Is it something you thought of before or is it new?
You might find many individuals will care,
So go for your dreams and definitely dare.
When you go ahead and do it before it is too late,
You might be surprised if it turns out just great.
It is not that easy to watch the days go by,
As we each do things differently with a sigh.
So is it time on earth to let people know,
We must change or suffer a serious blow.
Nothing might ever be the same,
As this virus is no ordinary dame.
When you care to help others who are in need,
One can make a difference and do a good deed.
What more can I think of today to say,
But enjoy each moment of every day.
