What Do We Teach the Future Generations?

eating earth

a new kind of lesson

for a planet

slowly being derailed

by the very people

in power

the very people

who are supposed to be

acting as the guardians

for the people – us

for the earth – our home

for the future – generations

if I look into the future

I see

an industrial wasteland

it came to me in a dream

I floated though

a world in desolation

a world caught up in moving forward

they/we forgot to

sit

be still

acknowledge

the direction chosen

is wrong

we hear the cries

of mother earth

but we continue

to mine

to frack

to chop forests

to add toxins to

the river

the air

the lungs

of all species

we see for ourselves

first hand

the effects

of our actions

yet

we continue to

rape

pillage

from this land

rejecting

the

oneness

unity

life force

vitality

encompassing all

we know its wrong

I mean

come on

black and white

is how I see it

surely

none of this is

rocket science

yet

we don’t make the changes

screaming at us in every direction

we continue to think

for ourselves

for our community

for our state

for our country

but NOT for the planet ……

I make the call of truth

the human race is

stupid

arrogant

ignorant

self serving

the people in power

weak!!!

Oh where have all the Warrior’s gone?

I call out in vain

but none appear

and so

the lesson I wish to teach

future generations

is to

accept

the demise

of our home

and accept

my apology

for not being able

to do a better job

as caretaker

of your home

yes yes

better to accept

if we are not prepared to

band together

and fight the good fight

that has an essence of

oneness

unity

love

all I ask

is to be the first generation

to LEARN

oh now there’s a word

LEARN from our mistakes

in your continual progression

forward

the earth

our home

is facing the dire

consequences

arising out from our own stupidity

the way we are going

it won’t be saved

you – our children

will be forced to live

with the

devastation

ruin

wasteland

that was once our beautiful home

so yes

better to learn to accept

things the way they are

for in your acceptance

peace will be waiting

for peace is always waiting

for those who truly understand

what it is worth fighting for

evolution will continue to flow on

and we shall flow with it

in whatever form

it would be nice to know that from here

we can learn to manage

paradise

somewhere

in the river

called

eternity
