Prophecy. 

Everybody feels it coming
nobody knows it’s shape
the worry inside us growing
regretting each mistake

Everybody knows its bigger
than any that came before
carrying the power to break us
a fracture to the core.

Everybody feels so helpless 
nobody knows the lines
to the song our hearts are singing
while we’re running out of time.

Everybody knows the bankers
are breaking all the rules
selling lies and stealing futures
leaving honesty for fools

Everybody’s online hoping
to make an instant hit
watching which trend is rising
trying to get a piece of it.

Everybody out there’s turning 
those fifty shades of gray
defibrillating apathy
looking for a game to play

Everybody’s talking sexy
everybody’s looking smooth 
everybody’s got an itch to scratch
an endless pain to soothe.

It doesn’t matter who you are
or what you have to spend 
when the music stops keep dancing 
till the step that brings the end

When the time’s been spent and the light grows bright,
when there’s no time left for spin
Can you face yourself when the truth’s exposed
about the world you’re living in.

  1. I like this…. I suspect this is mankinds prophecy,
    the last two lines seem to echo …… I wonder sometimes where I will be standing one year from now…the winds of changing are rushing faster these days

    I hope you are doing well within your world
    Take Care…You Matter…

  2. Beautiful poem, Alex. A great write, a great read. I love it. We can never really predict how the universe will pan out, and that scares so many of us because we feel like we have no control. In fact, we really don’t so maybe it’s best we go with the flow. Truth. I think the truth will eventually catch up with us wherever we are, or at least come to haunt our thoughts. Once again, brilliant piece of writing. Hope you are doing well.
