Experience of Time and Place
Experience of time and place,
folks’ interaction, face to face.
Accumulated emotions and fears,
delight in sparkling eyes, or tears.
Thrown into this see-saw world,
trusting, innocent, then truths unfurled.
Sheltered, loved, nurtured, such fun,
or dangers lurking, trust undone.
Smiling eyes absorb all features;
nature, colours, fellow creatures,
or eyes wide with fear and horror,
seeing war and death and squalor.
Our experience needs to count,
we see the world, we seek the fount
of knowledge to improve our lot,
nurture life, give all we’ve got
to make a difference, heart and soul,
a better future as our goal.
It’s up to us, do what you can!
Don’t be the one who looked – and ran!
