A New Sky


A new life is upon us, a new life;
A new sky is upon us, a new sky;
But what we need, is really
a spacecraft that is faster than light
a trillion times!
Where do I get such a spacecraft?
The answer: Inside your mind!

California is wet now; the shanty ghettos
do not see the daylight of Los Angeles Times:
there's a bakery nearby, a petrol pump, a cigarette
shop, an internet cafe,
But we need food; we need food.
To get food, we have to stand under the naked
sun without SPF30--
We have to look at the edge of the sky, and discover
the skeleton of an eagle; under
such conditions, we shall
Drive a tractor and leave deep furrows
Upon the chest of the planet:
A green blood will surface; and with it,
Flowers, fruits, vegetables!

A new life is upon us, a new sky.

Aiden, it's a beautiful piece of writing as always. Everything we need to know is what we already know. We can explore more and more God has gifted us a Brain. A true Blessing it is, No?

Everyone on this planet is doing everything for his stomach, to get himself feed. Struggling always brings something exciting. I loved the way you mentioned sunscreen in your poem. Life is all that we want to make it. We have to discover who we are, why we are and what are our needs. Life is never simple but it's we who makes it even more difficult. Live it to it's fullest.

Many Blessings to you
