Run-on Turns

The world is turning
often burning
constant churning
sometimes learning
meanwhile yearning
at times earning
in observing
and discerning
and returning
to a state of re-unlearning
and confirming
what is burning
and transforming what’s concerning
always working
through the hurting
power in the choice of wording
so the merging
is asserting
of what we are in deserving
focus in on what’s converting
to ideas worth preserving 
because the world is always turning
