    Changes are taking place
    At a well designed change taking pace
    The earth is taking on a new face
    New directions for the whole human race


    Folks can't alwayz see from whence it came
    Those into gaming continue to game
    But the reality evolves; things don't stay the same
    A part of this all is the evolution in name

    Look through history's pages it's easy to understand
    The names evolve also with the changes in land
    The ones controlling the naming have earthly power in hand
    They and their names fade away like the sifting of sand


    Resistance is alwayz there to any revolution
    Though it appears to be a problem it is part of the solution
    To aid and add strength to the inevitable evolution
    As the old ways and thinking give way in absolution


    Gradually the changes come upon the earth
    With some pain as alwayz in the bringing of new birth
    But all things of value are really surely worth
    The trials and hardships and accompanying dearth

    The new day on the horizon is not clear to all
    Some cling to the old day dreading its fall
    The prophets and seers continue their call
    As the writing becomes clearer and clearer on the wall

    the writing on the wall
    now this poem of your
    place me in a deep thought
    yes we need to be still for a moment
    and observe what is going on
    at times it seem like a repeat of histroy
    only with a modern swing to it
    yes i feeling you, hearing the warning
    yes just as clear as the writing on the wall
    much love
    tight drop
    Peace~N~Love

    Very thought provoking piece, a change is coming, ready or not. And as usual, you rhyme so effortlessly.
