"The triple-six apocalypse has passed / Into the Y2K of yesteryear"


Today finds yesterday forgotten fast
Six-Seven-Six arrives and finds us here
The triple-six apocalypse has passed
Into the Y2K of yesteryear
As just another day nor yet the last
But good for fun and folly played on fear

We had an election
Yet still our infection
There seems to be no end
Of rot no matter what
No way to break nor bend
Our chains

More war another hurricane or two
And then the sleeping giant will arise
No devil-face but one with human eyes
To see what true apocalypse can do
On just another day nor yet the last
Tomorrow finds today forgotten fast

"Ah, if only people could and would believe in peace and love the way they do fear... our world would change, I believe that. Call me crazy, but I do believe that." I agree with Amira's sentiments. And you are right, my friend in stating what you do in your verses here. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Stevie,

How true. I recall the sinking feeling in high school when a friend mentioned he'd heard the end of the world prophecy was 1984, or there about. I laugh at it now. Always use fretting over everything.

Amazing to me how the turn of every century brings hysteria and cries of apocalypse. Just look back in history. Are we so fearful of change? Change is good, clears out the deadwood and there's plenty of that in the world. We are burdened under systems that no longer serve us. Hurricanes, volcanos, earthquakes must be punishment from God, right? This is the earth purging and renewing herself as she has since the beginning of time. Add to that the consequences of our neglect, abuse and just plain lack of common sense when building cities and freeways which is a matter of cause and effect. God is loving and has left us with free will. It's our responsibility what we do with it. But we pass the blame, paralyze ourselves with fear and stifle efforts for change. Sorry to ramble, dear Stephen. I truly appreciate this write!

Reviewed by Marguerite Lemoine 6/7/2006
So true - However, fear is negative; love is positive - if we truly love we are without fear and love brings peace. So my formula
love and fear must kiss = peace What the world needs is more love and understanding plus knowledge of truth. There are too many lies and false truths and we are not following the path of Jesus Christ who is the truth, the way and the life.
Reviewed by A. Santo 6/7/2006
I believe fear of ANY numeric date is a sign of the mass hysteria promoted in an unstable world. Fear cripples the mind and brings irrational behaviors boiling to the top of humanity. In essence it brings our inner fears to the surface and in doing so makes a broad statement to the inner strife we feel from the environment we are now living in. Ah, if only people could and would believe in peace and love the way they do fear... our world would change, I believe that. Call me crazy, but I do believe that.
