Dystopia to Utopia
At dawn I open my eyes
At dawn I feel the affliction
Everything around me and everything around the world is in pain.
Smoke and dust
Death and starvation
Nowhere to go
But dedicated to living none the less.
No one to propagate peace
No one to provide food
No one to lead a mass exodus
Politicians refused to help.
They took what we had and spent it on themselves
Wasted wealth and resources
Leaving us poor with nothing and nowhere to go
No ability to dream of having homes and food
No power to progress
All was lost, lost like the past which can never come back
We had nothing to hold but hope
But… time changed
Bringing brightness to our lives, bright like the sunshine
Embellished like a diamond
Progress started and politicians were caught out
Punished for discrimination and indiscriminate acts
We lived happily, as if none of this had happened.
People started dreaming and thanking god (United States) BECAUSE:
It was the one to change us and raise our standard of life.
We never thought of good environment, big houses, swimming, sports, not even of going to school.
But now, I dream like a dream girl- school, graduation, colleges, responsibilities, success, and
The Value of Life.
