The day after tomorrow

When doors are closed and slammed into your face,
when friends go mad and die with only words of bitterness,
when you are ruined and betrayed by those you trusted,
when your love refuses to communicate with you,
when all the world is threatened by the day after tomorrow,
when such a scenery for every day becomes more imminent,
when those you love go disappearing into drugs,
when childhood pals go off in alcoholism, suicide and cancer,
when the world just keeps on going constantly and more awry,
when leading countries threaten punishment by force
of overkill with nuclear armamament, like North Korea and Iran,
when rogue states are allowed to keep on getting worse
with openly increasing tyranny, oppression, persecution,
murder, genocide and governmentally supported criminality,
what can you do but cry with all their victims in despair
to share with them at least in solidarity and empathy
a universal prayer in protest to echo through the universe
for something better than the day after tomorrow.

Brilliantly done dear Chris!
I love and agree with every line!
Today's world is really going mad!
Interesting! I have just posted a poem, 'Blind, Deaf and Dumb', about the world and its ways- trying to imagine what it would be like by wishful thinking... The question is taken up from entirely a different angle...
(((Hugs dear friend for telepathy of sorts)))
Love, Zoya
