Somewhere On The Earth Tonight – Poem

 

 

Somewhere On The Earth Tonight

 

 

Somewhere on the Earth tonight
new life cries
as its journey just begins
elsewhere old life dies

Somewhere on the Earth tonight
someone kills
stealing hopes and other lives
obeying alien wills

Somewhere on the Earth tonight
hunger gnaws
sapping life from children’s souls
paying for our grown-up wars

Somewhere on the Earth tonight
Gods at war
inspire hatred fear and death
deaf to reason’s cry – no more

Somewhere on the earth tonight
Dylan sings
laying bare the cant and lies
in his voice hard truth rings

Somewhere out in space tonight
we could see
shrinking icecaps rotting streams
the paradox of being free

Everywhere on Earth tonight
my brothers sisters sleep
peaceful thoughts but troubled dreams
my brother…our world…let us keep
