Poem: From your slumber you must wake
By: Linda M. Crate
we once went through the dark ages
must we repeat history?
it was foolish enough to have gone
let alone attempt to go there
and i can’t understand why people care about all
the wrong things and focus on the temporary
instead of events that will alter
years from now;
it is best not to be short sighted
haven’t people learned anything from history?
sometimes i wonder,
and i want to shake them from their zombie trances
demand that they wake up and smell the roses
before they become fodder
for the roses to grow
i open my lips once more in a plea:
open you eyes before it is too late
before the epiphany you could make is snatched from
you cruelly by the hands of time.
