I’m tired of hearing about the problems of the world when we are living in a time when people have more than they have ever had before. We can contact each other all over the world and communicate one on one – yet so many just sit at home listening to the doom and gloom on the news reports.
I still find it hard to believe that Donald Trump – who has the charisma of a toad could manipulate his way into the White House. I find it even harder to believe that people in Britain thought separating from Europe was going to make their country a better place. Our world is tiny in the scheme of the Universe. We need to work together to solve the world’s problems not argue about everything. We are all citizens of the world. The days of isolation and looking at strangers as enemies are long gone (or should be)
Today I decided to set up an account with WordPress not because I had something to say, but so I could follow my friends who do have things to say….somehow I ended up with a page of my own and here I am twittering…(no not twittering – I tried that but couldn’t really see the point.)
I think this poem (or part of a poem) – sums up my thoughts –
One second, one minute, one hour, one day,
On gossamer wings the moments fly away,
One week, one month, one year,
Build up to create a life of love and fear.
Babies learn to talk and walk with learning and with play,
Their tiny lives with every second expand in every way
Five years fly – then off to school,
Becoming adults –keeping cool….
Little bits of cosmic dust floating in the air,
Zillions of seconds passing without a single care,
From single sperm to speck of dust
From lord of all to pile of rust,
In the aeons of eternity of what use is this rhyme?
The only certainty that remains – is time…..
