The future

Posted by James Flynn on January 11, 2014 at 3:50 PM

Here is one of the two poems I wrote today.  I often ponder on the future of mankind, and marvel at the fact that we once were tree dwelling creatures....

The future ahead

Oh what will it bring

Skyscrapers piling

All lights are dim

What kind of people will our lands foster?

Will we be distinct?

Our differences no longer

Will there be peace?

Will there be war?

I hope that all spite

Has been shown the door

I hope all dictators and rulers alike

Are a thing of the past

As a new system takes flight

Our planet's decay

I hope has been halted

To a distant terrain

We may be transported

Years of work

And trial and error

Has helped produce knowledge

That will get passed on forever

A pleasant thought to ponder

Is one which sees

Distant modern colonies

With familiar tools bolts and keys

A future traveller

A thousand years from now

Carrying penicillin and aspirin

Seems great somehow

The creatures who once

Were up in the trees

Could be intergalactic

May we succeed
