    Passing Of Sands



    As I sit hear in limbo staring
    at the haunting shape of the hour glass.

    I wallow in my thoughts of sanity
    Has madness corrupted my mind?

    Every grain of sand representing
    my brothers and sisters, as it is
    devoured through the maze like shape
    in the cyrstal clear glass.

    Every ounce of hope screaming
    for the unity of my people.
    Wanting them to bind together
    and form a fortress of mass
    alliances.

    Defeating the hole that
    swallows their souls hopelessly down
    to the bottom pit of despair

    With every grain that passes through
    I see a life that is full of
    so much potential, washed away
    by the swaying of the currents

    A life as pure as the first breathe
    of a new born infant
    A life filled with infinite possibilites
    of paths and purpose

    Sure as the sky kisses the Sun, Moon,
    and Stars with an unconscious ability
    The reign of my people most too
    caress their beginings

    When the last grain of sand passes
    through the hole of lost purposes,
    My heart falls on deaths ear

    As my heart explodes and comes
    to a wretched hault for at least 5 seconds,
    darkness parades my existance
    as a firey boil of tears escapes my
    swollen eyelides and spirals down
    my sulking face

    My people! My people! I cry out.
    Unable to face the reality of a nation lost
    a resonate sound protrudes against my breast
    causing an eruption in my heart
    restoring life back unto me.
    A since of hope

    I reach out to grasp the hour glass of time
    in an attempt to restore humanity
    I desperatly turn the glass over
    to created a new beginning

    To give my people a second chance
    A chance to not become a passing grain of sand

    Its Freedom Time!!!! Its Freedom Time!!!!
    Get Free My Beloveths!!!!

    Free your minds and go back to
    the source from which you came!!!!!

    Evolutions=Revolutions=Freedom

    :deal: Eloquently stated as only you could PurpleMoons. I loved the feeling of hearing the cry for unity and alliance amongst our people. We need it badly.


    Oh, and I hope you enjoyed your birthday! :fairy:

    The message here, so powerful. I loved the way you used the image of an hourglass to represent the flow and passage of precious time and wasted wealth. Well done.
