Hurts Like Paradise Posted November 1, 2016 Share Posted November 1, 2016 The year is 2035 Yeah, it’s an interesting time to be alive I am on the highway The Uber self-driving car got in my lane I almost got badly hurt I am taking this to court Filing lawsuit The law said it was my fault Even though, the car went into my lane But what they won’t tell you is, It was 5% system failure fluke When you are born They implant a chip on you They say it helps to keep birth records and eventually keep revenue There are robots, machines and drones everywhere They used to create a great big scare Now they are the norm They help us weather life’s storm They even become friends with the dogs and other animals 2035 is a strange matrix A strange climate we have created But it’s nothing compared to this… Having a hologram of yourself If you can’t get a hold of me, don’t worry There are plenty of me to go around They look just like me But they have no soul They talk just like me And feel emotions with tears But if you look close enough They have a chip in their ear What do we tell our children? The world used to not always be this way? Our brains are shrinking As we let computers do our thinking Yes, we evolve, as a species grow taller But our hearts grow smaller Yes, the say the world is continuing to get worse Another person filed for bankruptcy or divorce But then, at the same time, it’s getting much better The darkness is being exposed And the incredible love that does exist keeps on our toes God’s light burns up our deceitful and harmful ways Because He is the Ancient of Days Welcome to 2035 Please feel free to like my Facebook page for Desiring Cadence, my poetry blog: https://www.facebook.com/desiringcadence/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel And here is my poetry blog: https://desiringcadence.wordpress.com/blog/ 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
