When I was a child I had a dream that I was the last person on earth,
There was not another soul to be found,
As I walked the streets there was destruction everywhere when I looked around.
Cars had been abandoned & buildings had crumbled to the ground,
There was an eery silence in the air, there was not a sound.
I awoke & was terrified by what I had seen,
& laid awake for the rest of the night wondering where did everyone flee.
I was pondering on that dream today & what life would be like if it were true,
Living would not be worth it, where would I go, what would I do.
I reflected on how lonely life would be, not having anyone to share days with,
& started to count my blessings for everyone, as it is a Gift.
We walk around complaining, judging, criticising & cussing our brother,
But none of this would be important if we were the only one,
& there was no other.
I realised how vital time is & every second is precious & can’t get back,
& how much time is wasted on petty issues, they are endless to count,
I have lost track.
Love is all that matters between us when you look at it this way,
& I fall to my knees asking you to guide & teach us, to love one another,
this is what I do pray.
Humans have endless potential & loving each other is the greatest one,
& it is through love that we will save this earth,
by following the path of your Holy Son.
