The Conundrums of Today and the Promise of Tomorrow

Elizabeth Moroz 1982 (Perth)

The Conundrums of Today and the Promise of Tomorrow

A tear of genuine sorrow forming in the eye of an innocent child
The fear of what the feminine has borrowed in order to represent itself as wild
A torrid exclamation from a Capatalist exposed to the truth
A florid invocation of one sincerely reflecting on his youth

The inference of genocide behind a concrete wall
The impotence that cannot hide when it’s exposed to one and all
An unsightly vision of misplaced expressions of sultry romantic need
As nightly  incisions of disgraced regressions expose the rich man for his greed

A light that burns so brightly that it lingers beyond the dawn
A fight that turns contritely to peace and turns agression into yawns
The solitude of refection that calls for every man to embrace
As the rude perceptions of introspection show every line upon her face

A world divided constantly over economics, war and power
While they resided instantly in shelter of the profanity as the law breaks by the hour
A fragile refugee crossing a boarder with dreams of freedom in her mind
A soliloquy embossing a crazy hoarder who screams and leads them to what she cannot find

The water sources poisoned as the population fights for the right to breathe
A daughter forces to be orphaned as her heart begins to grieve
The grand extrapolations of world leaders in consultation
As they demand configurations as people bleed in commiseration

The corruption of the heirarchy denying justice for the poor
While the interruption of the patriarchy demands the political stage and floor
As the homeless on the streets survive another night in the cold
The resistance faces defeats as they are bought before they can be sold

The never ending desperation of a mothers love for her only child
They’ll try to severe it pretending indignation as each protest is officially put on file
While the earth declines and heats beyond all scientific predictions
Is it worth it to compete with the wrong specifics and intentions?

Rise again power and knowledge from the depths of honour and legitimate truth
The wise don’t pretend to share the flowers of their foliage until they meet the dedication of the youth

And life renews both fair and just and with grace and dignity and might
While man and wife no longer dispair over what is wrong and what is right
There is hope upon the horizon of mankind growing once again
As we elope with light to rest our eyes upon in unshakeable knowing until the end .
