The judgement

The dark skies blush at dawn;
taken from behind by the rays
of the life baring sun.    
Another day peaks over our heads  
like so many others, caressing cheeks    
of those who rise or fall.    
Who can say, tomorrow,    
I will hear the clock strike twelve or,    
I will be counting, endlessly, moon phases?    
We have not the power against    
the enduring ticking of the seconds;  
we cannot prey the sands of time!  
We are but useless fragments    
of this forsaken kingdom called mankind;  
how dare we think to set milestones?!  
We are the destroyers of our own essence,    
begotten by our own evil divinity;  
a farce that has no reason for being, if not greed.    
We proclaim to give unconditionally.    
But we take back more than we give in!    
We are raping our own souls; plunging into caos.    
We are but wasteless particles of dust,    
blown away by the slightest movement    
of a butterfly's wings; shadows that fade away.    
Bow, me must, our heads in shame.    
We are a mistake of creation, but in our vanity,    
we dare raise ourselves to heights we ignore.    
Our scars are self inflicted.    
We know not shame for our obsessions;  
we feel no remorse for our scandals.    
The innocent and the vulnerable    
have been abused; the children die  
of hunger, thirst and cold, upon our streets.    
Rise up oh children of man.    
Raise your voices so that tyrants can heed.    
Raise your arms in defense of justice.    
For every child abused or abandoned,    
for the rough sleepers in their bedrock shelter,    
for the foreigner, the helpless and those    
discriminated, for gender, colour, condition or    
creed, condemned by the well thinking,    
mistreated by the chosen hypocrites.    
There will be no second chance.    
It is time to do or die. Wager on the right of history.  
You will not be remembered for accepting a lie.

A meditation against what this generation in power is doing. They believe that they are chosen and powerful to ignore everything our fathers have fought for. We cannot ignore the times we are living....
A meditation against what this generation in power is doing. They believe that they are chosen and powerful to ignore everything our fathers have fought for. We cannot ignore the times we are living. No one can sit back and think it is not their responsibility! It is and, as a great Latin thinker once said: when a government tends to it's own interest, ignoring the wellbeing of the community, it is time for the people, to whom the power belongs, to overturn them and delegate the power to those that will use it with justice.
