Poetry and Musings


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
