Many years ago we had communism dictatorship s and east west split

but all the time it happening we had world peace and harmony

apart from cuban missile crisis which nearly blew a big fuse

for many year we went about our work each day

main players in life we knew were Russia and Nato and usa

people had jobs and many had homes too

and food it may not have be brilliant

but we knew where we stood in life

and in world order too

then one evening in 1989

in Germany something was about to change

people started gathering at Berlin

on each side of the great wall

people started chipping away

wall started crumbling and falling away

people climbed over and celebration

did begin .

what they thought was a start of freedom

was in fact the beginning of world we have today

disorder and disarray, greed, terrorism

and world disorder  too

as since this day happened many years ago

world order has crumbled and started to fade away

people struggle more now to survive

get homes work and food to eat too

terrorism is rife with breakaway republic and country’s

causing such disarray

in world we live today

gone is that past its history

but just for a

brief moment in time we had world peace and harmony.

  1. Great point! Nostalgia, I’ve had a lot of that lately. I wish for the days of innocence and peace that little children have when they know nothing of these things. Loved it! 🙂 Blessings, Terri

    • Well Terri i have spoken to many from the former eastern block who are much younger than me who now live in hampshire uk and expressed my thoughts to them and they say their parents say the same to them
      when cold war was on the world was safer and we all had a purpose and more i look back at it and my times in 1980s serving in RAF i feel we had world peace and harmony or closest we will get to it since the second world war. yes there were small moments of tension apart from cuban missile crisis. i was also brought up with forces out in singapore late 60s early 70s so world situation was clearer to me than to others maybe as small boy at school . so i think its our job or purpose in life to let the younger generations know the truth as media and goverments dont always tell the truth about life.

  2. Kevin, You’re absolutely right! It’s when we forget that we are in trouble. I feel the same way about the media and governments. In the US, we have strayed from so many things that made this nation great in the first place, #1 God. That’s how I named my blog, one day I got mad at the tv because they were reporting something that I don’t recall now but I would have said, “And that’s a miracle ladies and gentlemen!” but they said everything else but that. Mark laughed at me because I yelled, “What about God?!” I still do it to this day, lol. Blessings, Terri

  3. Terri that is when you ask the question of life where is he and why is he letting things like this happen in our world today

  4. Kevin, I know that is the normal reaction people have in this world that we live to day, it used to be mine. But this is where I have a slight edge over the norm because I truly do know that He is there. When a person has a near death experience with God/Jesus/the Light/angels/ect., they are forever changed in some way. I don’t ask that “why” question to Him much anymore because of all that I have been through, I know that everything has a reason/purpose no matter how much it doesn’t make sense to us. God is not human. We cannot understand Him. That fact that I KNOW He’s there is good enough for me. That’s the best that I can explain it. Peace, Terri
