Mold

No need to run

The future will catch you

Don’t woo the cheap message

Peddled by the fear-mongers

The odds are not against you

They are idle stacks of numbers

The odds are not for you

Numerals don’t break a sweat

You are enthroned  endlessly

In the center

Of the season of change

The climate of fear is looming

But the weather is still your villein

The boom showers they promised

Are forever impending

The mold for tomorrow

Lies between your palms

A man’s heart may lie to him

But his hands are never deceptive

    1. What can we do except to be kind and helpful towards our friends and fellow inhabitants who are clinging to the same speck of dirt while we are drifting side by side and hoping for the best? Thanks for reading . I appreciate your comment. Have a wonderful day!

  1. The times are an illusion, the mind is a trickster, the heart doesn’t lie but what does lie is the fearful tongue, and body language especially hands speak clearly of what the intent is. I just threw the added thoughts to your thoughts and yes I disagreed with you about the heart. The Inner Workings of the Heart do not go by the rule of man but by Higher Ways, based on Love and Truth. It is the imperfect man (who we all are) who interprets the Heart Whisperings wrong. You really got my thinking juices going on this one. Thank you! ❤

  2. So lovely to meet you! Your poetry is creative and full of life.

    I am so touched by this line in your About page: “I have found that whether you are in the prison or in the palace, you can still be a blessing to others.”

    Thank you for following my blog. It is welcoming to know you. Blessings, Debbie 🙂
