I fear I may

By Nicholas Hooper

I fear I may be losing my feeling of equanimity
As this world becomes increasingly steered by profanity
The fires, the wars, the crooks that gamble with our security
See no future, just the power and money, tis the end of our humanity

Wondering where the peace that settled in my mind has gone
Losing the sense of where my inner light that shone
On all my thoughts that came and went like rabbits going on and on
Life has drawn a line and I must heed it or be left as one

Who in his right senses would believe this game
That all the world was made of people just the same?
We are all different and any other argument’s just lame
Humanity and brotherhood and sisterhood is just a name

So rest awhile and sing a song of millions
Who wander through this life as simple pillions
As greedy men and women make their billions
While human increase grows and grows to trillions



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano, I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
