    I could see the vastness of the lands in a 360 degree visionary quest.
    Far off around man’s civilization is this mounting of dark smoke.
    Closely, I pay attention to its progress, say to others “Look all around us!”
    As they say, “So far off we have time relax dear watchman times are good.”
    Yet the urge within me continued as slowly the smoke mounts towards us.
    Level of fire sparking high into the heavens as smoke burst forth even darker.
    Still no one would take noticed as times for most involves the pleasures of life.
    Until one day conflicts rage all around man’s way of life and the fire pushed on.
    Now I am witnessing social unrest and at the same time the fire is even closer.
    The warning continues to be sound yet no one take notice for anguish and grief.
    Death and turmoil is the order, as peace for civilization lost and the fire continues.
    I have noticed only a small remnant of souls taking heed, saying, “God’s Day is coming!”
    Yet the majority continues with the pleasures and the turmoil as if time is not a factor.
    I, the watchman now see this fire reaching the point of no return, still no one takes notice.
    Yet I continue to sound the alarm with every aspect I can muster still no one response.
    Now I must decide what I must do for survival as the fire surpassed our comfort zone.
    The urge within me push the intensity to continue alarming with all my energy.
    The white leveled fire burns so completely that I ring the alarm as my life depends on it.
    Finally, the intense feeling leaves within me as I walk away from my job quietly.
    The white leveled fire is upon this civilization as I sense a Power controlling its purpose.

    Thanks

    First let me say I am honored and please forgive me for being late with responding, but life as a poet is a busy one for me with reading, writing and even encouraging other poets to reach for their highest star. I will make an effort and thanks for the words spoken from your hearts.
