Throwback Friday, What Will Happen Tomorrow, by Ivor Steven

What will happen tomorrow, where will it be safe for the children to play .. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ’”

Go Dog Go Cafรฉ

Today I am presenting a poem that I originally wrote back in July 2018, about โ€˜Trumpโ€™sโ€™ Texas refugee prisons/camps >> .. but this morning I altered the piece to be appropriately poignant, and represent my thoughts about this weekโ€™s sad tragedy in Texas โ€ฆ

What Will Happen Tomorrow

I eat, I drink, I sleep

I casually dream of yesterdayโ€™s

I shamefully wonder about tomorrowโ€™s

Iโ€™m walking along my sunny street

Iโ€™m alive and free as a bird

But where do the children play tomorrow

Will the children wake-up without crying?

Will the children see sunlight today?

Will the children be with their parents tomorrow?

Why are the lawmakers sleeping?

Where is their conscience today?

What will happen to their voices tomorrow?

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Well done my friend! A worthy question to ask. I see fewer and fewer children playing outside these days. We used to live outside all summer long having a great time! With gun money buying politicians I fear there will be little significant change.

      1. I so like your revisions. It is a much needed message, with powerful important questions. Those questions should be asked daily by every adult…and our lives, voting, actions, compassionate-helping, etc., must reflect the answers we want to see happen.
        We must always speak up for the voiceless. Too many children around our world die each day because of many sad reasons…so often from things we could do something about.
