Our World as We Know It
When I peer out my window, what is seen?
Tall monochrome structures that cast shadows,
a thickness of air that coats our whole earth,
and a void of all that is natural.
How is it that we were able to do this?
Stomp out the natural cycle of chaos
to put up a broken society
filled with: war, poverty, hunger, and death.
Humans kill those around them for sins of
lust, wrath, greed, envy, gluttony, sloth, and pride
when they are only feuding with themselves,
passing those injuries onto our world
scouring her beauty for all to see.
Vain beings we are, conquering nature;
overtaking land not meant for humans.
Where trees are to grow tall, ancient, and wise
shading those below that traverse a path
leading down to the crystal clear river
where her creatures drink, hunt, live and frolic.
But we have destroyed that serene image
beyond any visible recognition
and we continue not really caring,
But there are some, few in number who try
as one so
