The Last Stand

The day will come when humanity will make its last stand. The air raid sirens will wail one last time and then in a brief moment, it will all be over. What will we leave behind?

When the last fire goes out, when the smoke clears, when the dust settles, and the last brick falls, what will be left to remember us by? What testament will be left to tell our story? What legacy will be left as our final message to whoever finds it? Will our story even be worth preserving? How will we be remembered?

I tell you now, this is our last stand! If we fail to change course then I fear the day will come when you will hear the sirens wail, a loud rumble in the sky followed by a bright flash and then… nothing! As yourself: How will you remember me? What is my legacy to those that follow?

What I Feel!

As a writer and philosopher I carry the heaviest burden and the deepest pain of seeing a nation I cannot change, a people I cannot save, a world who’s future is bleak and dark who’s destiny I cannot prevent.

 No one can ever understand how I feel inside and what it is I carry in my heart. Only one like me will understand this burden and pain that resides within me.

All I can do is the one thing I know how…write. Write in hope that somewhere someone who can direct these changes will see, understand and hear the message. I write in hopes that maybe, just maybe, I can make a difference even if small. Even the smallest spark can start the greatest of fires!

Maybe my small spark of desire for change will inflame the world with the fires of hope and change! Maybe not today, but maybe tomorrow the fires of change will rage!

 I carry a burden no one can take from me and it is heavy.
I feel a pain no one can cure and it runs deep in my soul.
I carry a hope for a hopeless future.
I carry the spark that could very well set the world ablaze!
