Is this Us?

It feels as if the world is breaking.

Its not been well for many years, what humanity does and is doing has never quite been just.

But we’ve had moments of brilliance

And there is always a spark of hope.

 

On the horizon, every horizon, as it moves around the globe

Is met with increasing trepidation.

We don’t hear about all the destruction and death,

we don’t care about all the unfairness.

 

It feels as if the world is breaking.

We are walking into the deadlands, a war.

But not a war with clear lines or defences, one where hope is

All we have.
