Signs of Demise

There was a time when we believed
we could achieve anything,

when we strove to overcome
the impossible,

when we prayed for everything.

Now,

we pray for nothing,

have come to view success in terms
of survival, not the possible,

and the concept of achievement
is considered a betrayal.

How far we have fallen from the land
of giants and dreamers,

to a land of dependents who wish only
for the demise of others.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
