your imagination here is as in the thought of The Bard a "Forgone conclusion"  thanks for your math
and your work on this piece...

Line 7 should be 'has' changed, in relation to amount, not people.  (Read it, you'll see what I mean.)

I don't think 8-10 is finished.  A part would be better, apart means away from, not included in.  

This seems very dry and there is movement, nothing really suggestive of a poem, in my opinion.  Can you make it a poem, give it some action?
