So Shall It Be - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Some live

Some die

Some  exist in a zombie trance

Those whom awaken from the trance

Have been given the power

To release

Their brothers asnd sisters

From the zombie trance

They have the antidote

They carry it within their being

They say to us

Awaken now

Awaken now

If you so will

So will it be

Done

And

So will it be

Done

Now

In this Moment

Now

So shall it be

Note:  This was written and published on my blog for the first time today, 16 June 2017.  It took me about an half hour to write after the initial wave of inspiration.  I play with the words until they find their rightful place on the paper.  If you can understand that and let down your guard for just a moment then you too will  awaken from your Zombie trance.  You will find the antidote hiding within the above words of this poem.

You are trying to express in words what is really inexpressible Michael. At least that is what I feel. That inner 'knowing' that lies deep within is beyond words - but I salute you for your effort.
