Hopeless. Hopeful.

By Leonard Pigg



I see a dark future

A world with black flowers

Children play in battlefields

Dark banners wave in the green skies

Drones wandering aimlessly

Leaders answer to no one

Murky waters all around

A pungent musk to the air

An endless overload

Sleep is never peaceful

Logos branded inside eyelids

Salvation is a myth

This is the cost of living



There’s so much pain in this world

I will hold your hand and take it from you

That’s how much you mean to me

We can make things better

I know we can evolve

Ascend beyond the mundane

If only we are together

Moving mountains from our path

Becoming a beacon of that which should be

Let’s change the world together
