Dystopian Days

A tale of dystopian living
Society divided, a rift
One side hating the other
While the anthem plays in shifts.

This cautionary tale of dystopia
This mask, distance, jab
One side against the other
While those in charge grab.

Are we asleep or awake now?
Are we living in meta, VR?
Are we okay with the reset?
Is one world order where we are?

Do you want a chip in your hand?
Is it just easier that way?
Will you give up your freedom for convenience?
Or will you kneel with me and pray?

    The harsh reality is that dear poet we need to or have to go with the crowd in such a disatrous situation, left with no alternative…love your poem poet Melanie!

      As a Christian I am perpetually swimming against the tide! We are called to live in this world but not be a part of it! I try to live this life daily for Christ Jesus sake as He died for my sins so I should be able to follow Him, not the world. I think that’s the least I can do.

    I will kneel with you and pray, Melanie!
    I am certainly not okay with the reset.

    What a powerful poem ! It challenges the readers to rethink their priorities . There is great sense of urgency in this faith- based poem.
