2024 - A Look Ahead!

In 2024, a world ensnared in strife,
War's cruel grip claims innocent life.
Jerusalem's echoes, Ukraine's cry,
Dictators' shadows cast beneath the sky.

China, Russia, and Turkey's hold,
Power intoxicates, freedom they withhold.
Trump's return, a psychopath's encore,
A world on the edge, shaken to its core.

Global warming's spectre, looming near,
Nature protests, shedding silent tears.
Wars ignite, fuelling the inferno's flame,
Humanity teeters on the brink of shame.

In the heart of despair, a faint glimmer gleams,
Resilience whispers in the face of extremes.
For in the darkest hour, miracles may rise,
A chance for redemption, a world to revise.

Let compassion spark like a wildfire's blaze,
Igniting unity in myriad ways.
From the ashes, a phoenix may ascend,
A world reborn, where broken hearts mend.

In the face of despair, let kindness prevail,
A small glimmer of hope, a humble exhale.
A whisper of hope, for global salvation,
Seeking a path to heal every nation.
