Within This World Of Man - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Do not fear

These days of darkness

When nations

Rival for control

Of resources

Economic markets

And

The minds of mankind

All will fail

For they have chosen

The path of failure

Devoid of Light

Devoid of Love

An end to thir archaic systems

Is soon at hand

Hope springs from a Land to the East

A New way of living

A respect for each other

Reason returns

In time

Love will once again

Rule upon the Land

And

Amongst the nations

A new renaissance

New creations

Man aligns again

With the Earth

And

The Stars

Heaven and Earth rejoice

For

Man has returned

As a

Co-partner

A cooperator

A co-creator

In the building

Of human community

Such structures of beauty

Shall arise

From the ashes of the old ways

A new community

Will evolve

All will be heard

All will decide

In its building

Yes

Once again

Man realigns

With the rhythms of Life

And begins again

Anew

Enlivened

Refreshed

And

Self-reliant

Within this world of Man

M.N. Hopkins

Note:  This poem was written last night and published for the first time on my blog today as part of Inspirational August. 

The word, Man denotes both man and woman.
