When I was Here Before

(Reincarnation)

 
 

Things are so very different

From when I was here before,

Soaring costs and crime rates

There's even talk of going to war.

There is pestilence and famine,

Unprecedented drought as well as floods

The world has become an ugly place

Bereft of grass, of flowers, of woods.

Modern man has raped the Earth

And laid to waste the furtile plain

He has destroyed the very atmosphere

That did all life sustain.

Things are so very different

From when I was here before,

It will take centuries of healing

To restore life once more.

Things are so very different

I cannot reconcile this scene,

The changes all around me

Are quite abhorrent, in fact, obscene.

I shall forego this reincarnation

And erase the things I saw,

Perhaps one day I may return

To that world I knew, before.
