Utopia by Matti ´Zhaman´ Jalasvuori
Elfwood.com

Life gets better all the time [for most]...



The future is not as bleak as it seems,
although we all have had bad dreams.

It is hard to count the ways,
the world is imperiled.

Some people think,
that it is God's wrath unfurled.

Some people think,
that it's nature's revenge.

Some people think,
that it's in the cycle of things.

Whatever it is; its power is great.
Some people think, it's already too late.

When I get sour lemons,
I make lemonade.

We've come too far,
not to make the grade.

We've made too much progress,
to go retrograde.

A study of history,
shows us the way.

We've always made progress,
day to day.

We've always made progress,
dear to dear.

We've always made progress,
year-to-year.

Oh yes, there have always been wars.
pestilence, famine and political boars.

Weak man's attempts to put us asunder,
that led many young man to an early down under.

The fact is that in spite of all the ups and downs,
as time goes by there are fewer frowns.

We are not despots. We are not clowns.
Success is our weakness. More ups than downs.

I see a bright future, when all is said and done.
A shining Utopia, when, over ignorance, we've won.

To win over ignorance would give us harmony and that's all I seek in life. Your poem is homeward bound and full of believing. I like that best of all Ron.
Blessings and love,

"We are not despots. We are not clowns."
Who is the 'we' you are taking about Ron?
There are many that fit this description throughout history.

Whatever history has been recorded (which is certainly not comprehensive) shows some semblance of mans bumbling attempts to restructure the results of his arrogance. There is much in the history of this planet that has never been recorded. Example: what unrecorded mysteries were there before the second verse in Genesis. This present age started with an Earth that was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
Good write!
