In the blink of an eye

Is it as hopeless as predicted,
is there still hope, as some say there is,
is there a solution to the conflicts that dwell
in each of our hearts and minds?
Will the villain be successor,
will this be the end of all good,
have we really all forgotten what it’s like to be free
of the fears and threats thrown at us every day?
How did we get to be so programmed
to acquiesce no matter the bullshit served to us,
I am shocked to stupefaction,
I am mortified at my own response,
I am stunned by the deceptions,
the devious methods and intricate networks
created for our convenience and pleasure
now turned Warden on its prisoners,
taken, our self, our courage, our belief between right and wrong,
we have been hammered and attacked at every point, they grasp our every weakness
and they are one step away from flicking the switch and we will be imprisoned,
in both body and mind, am I the only one desperate to put a halt to this madness,
for heaven’s sake, please look and see!


  1. It's all about communication, friend Shadow. Communication is a 2 way street. Who would have thunk, hmmm? Wishing you well. Love, cat.

  2. This too shall pass. We will adapt to the new normal at some point and get on with living. Our big brains love to imagine the worst and we love a scary story. Stay safe and enjoy the solitude of writing.

  3. We hear the BS, we see the BS, we talk among our-self's about it in vocal voices. But say nothing to the people that count. We know we are following a road to damnation, but we have gotten so soft in our minds, we don't fight to get off the road, we just keep following it like a herd of sheep being lead to the slaughter.

    Be safe

  4. Hi Shadow,

    I hope you have been fine. There was some issue with my blogger comments settings so I couldn't see the comments. I have replied to the whole backlog now 😁

    Beautiful poem!!

  5. This too shall pass and still the question remains "what of ourselves will pass with it?"

    Methinks that by the time we get the all clear people are going to be so hungry to make up whatever they perceive as a loss they will rush headlong into the sea of stink and again place themselves right where their masters wish them to be.

    Step one should be shun all debt both human and financial.
    Step two is protect the freedom found from step one.
