The Tempest

The tempest has passed

now the world waits

while the few decide to pick up the pieces

or turn away from ending a cyclic event

drowning our minds with neglectful promises

of the never after

Human democracy

speaks loudly

of the fallen

but human diplomacy

cannot reach the point

where the never ending doesn’t begin again
