Socialist Sonnet No. 115

Look Forwards


History as yet unmade shall be the judge

Of present intentions, whither they pave

A destination either good or grave,

It is not enough to hold an image

Of what might be, but then not realise

It in reality. This world won’t change

Unless people decide to rearrange

Their situation from that which denies

Free access for all to what is needed

For lives to be lived well as possible,

A worldwide commonwealth to enable

Human potential to have succeeded.

This present is merely the passing sum

Of what’s been: look forwards to what’s to come.


D. A,
