Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Age Of Enlightenment
 



There have been many periods
In human history,
Where man has reached into the depths
Of grand philosophy.

And thought became his greatest tool,
Distracting him from war.
Reason replaced the battlefield
And man stopped keeping score.

But humans are a selfish lot,
And war always returned.
Mankind abandons such pursuits,
Forgetting what they’ve learned.

And this brings us to present day,
Do any see the signs?
How boldly man has taken to
Crossing the moral lines.

And even his philosophy,
Attempts to justify,
The self fulfilling paths he walks,
For his piece of the pie.

And every talent given him
Is used for his own gain.
To help him rise above his peers,
And ride the gravy train.

The singer over sings the song,
To gain celebrity.
The actor lives upon his stage,
To feed his vanity.

While bards and poets drift far from
The spiritual light.
The world becomes their paradise,
And they think this is right.

For things beyond this earthly realm,
Seem all but out of reach.
Words take a more artistic turn,
But rarely ever teach.

For like the artist of today,
Who seeks the master’s crown,
Their painted dreams are meant to gain
A level of renown.

And so philosophy will sleep,
Until the wars subside.
And man is ready to pursue,
A spiritual guide.

Where, once again, wisdom will reign,
Within the hearts of men.
Enlightenment will conquer war,
Until man falls again.

For harmony will never last,
While people seek to rise
Above the measure of their peers,
For some coveted prize.

And only through enlightenment
Can mankind’s spirit soar.
Only when we all stand equal
Will we be free of war.
