its a sad time
the world didnt end
but we all lost our mind
search upon your grave faces
for a little sympathy to call your own
ask yourself why
you believed the hype
then save your answers
and prayers
for the right to watch the ones you love
sit on their dreams and weep..

Jackal - I find this interesting. What precisely are you saying in this? Your poem has aroused my curiousity - why have we 'all lost our mind[s]'? Why do the ones we love 'sit on their dreams and weep'?

Hi, Jackal. The last four lines were great poetry; the rest is a little message heavy. Not that that's a bad thing, but I remember when I was starting out with my writing, I had more heavy handed opinions than playful phrasing and love of words. Those last four lines show a lot of promise -- I wish I'd written them, darnit!   And the turn of millennium wasn't that bad. Well, unless you were in Los Angeles. What a lousy celebration for the supposed entertainment capital of the world!
