Spoken Word Poetry Reading: Society’s Chain

I wrote and recited a short poem, titled, “Society’s Chain.” Today’s world is in chaos and the chain that has united us all, seems to be breaking. #Love and #unity is on the verge of breaking down, and people seem to be at #war. Our society is hurting. It is not just sick with a virus, but it is sick with sadness and anger. 

Below the link is the poem, so you can read along as you listen to the #poetry #podcast.

Society’s Chain

Our society is on the verge of an internal break-down.
So many are ailing - 
Not just from a worldly contagious virus,
But so many have relapsed in what their ideas of respect are,
And where they store hope.

Perhaps our world just isn’t ill with a terrible malady,
But it is developing a disability to love and unite.

How much time will we spend in a period of convalescence is up to us,
And what we decide to do while we wait, 
Will depend on the direction of our hearts.

Shall we come together and join in hands of faith with unity,
Or will we break the chain?
