Your treacherous tears, how they flow from your eyes
Never stopping, full of compromise
And we wonder why?
Hoping the fears will clear and perhaps we will see
All of the beauty, all of the creativity that rests in every mineral of the sea
Every particle and every molecule.
But all in all,
Our eyes and ears closed,
because we forgot the connection to our souls.
As Mother Earth cries for the dear departed lives.
Counting only human numbers, all others pass by.
Unnoticed, unaffected, yet millions end up devastated.
The howl of the wolves grows quiet, as the forests become parking lots.
The damage is not noted, it is the profit that gets credit.
Your lakes poisoned
Your trunks cut
Your lungs disappear piece by piece
And yet we complain of cancer cells,
Is the human race not insane in doing the same?
An endless consumption, a bottomless stomach,
a rat race with no end.
The greed keeps on feeding till there is nothing to call thine.
Entitlement of a generation lost to 9-5.
Who are we to say this is mine,
We have no rights to whine.
Our eyes bleed with desire,
Our naked bodies craves branding,
Our minds diseased in wanting,
And yet we complain.
Wish we could have it all the same
But its not the people who are to blame
Corporations and governments are the ones to shame
Their greed has infected the sane…
