Future Equals Hope

Future Equals Hope


You can look
You must not hope
Hope only if
Hope if you can fly
Fly above a storm
Fly above it’s eye
Eye it up
Eye it only from the sky
Sky is where you’ll be safe
Sky the only place
Place on the ground
Place its power
Power enough to devour
Power to much for you
You would not endure
You would die
Die stripped of flesh
Die death from wind
Wind not flatulence
Wind a tornado
Tornado with its seeking eye
Tornado nature sweeping
Sweeping clean
Sweeping without malice
Malice a human trait
Malice with which some rule
Rule no contemplation of results
Rule without respect
Respect forcibly demanded
Respect no wind recognises
Recognises not your face
Recognises no barriers
Barriers built by man
Barriers all eroded
Eroded into sand
Eroded by wind whipped waves
Waves oceans moving
Waves capped in foam
Foam white clouds
Foam the froth of madness
Madness winds unleash
Madness out of control
Control natures power
Control mans lust to kill
Kill for pleasure
Kill with no thought of the future
Future winds of doom
Future hurricanes
like a woman scorned
the winds have no mercy none
punishing times

A blitz poem and a haiku, thanks to EcoSeasons, for the inspiration.
