A Generation Into Eternity

A Generation Into Eternity

by Seah Greenhorn
(Poem with copyright)



"A generation is going,
and a generation is coming,

but the earth remains forever."

Forever,
as cycles of winters and springs?

Forever,
as rivers and gentle streams?

Forever,
the stars and glorious moon?

Or

Forever,
the people
with no space
or room?

Forever,
a person with food and a place.

Forever,
living with dignity. Grace.

Forever,
praising
the Creator

of the human race.

Forever,
an opportunity
to chose life and exist
as long as the sun

enjoying

lovely
the songs of the loon.

Forever,
the earth a welcoming home
beautiful

with love soon
to internationally bloom.

Forever and ever.
A chance to partake

since

Death
will no longer
destroy
and consume.

This invite
Our Almighty

did make.
