The Beginning of an End We Should Not Have to Face

The Beginning of an End We Should Not Have to Face

As storms arrive and the din in respect subsides,
contentions ease for nature’s hand is stronger
than the meek wills of humanity,
so entrenched in the great divide,
we cannot see what we have caused,
and within the fury about to be unleashed,
there is nowhere to hide,
wrath so coldly dispensed, no spite or end in sight,
just a balance being restored.

How blind our blinkered view,
selfish gain and expedience the glue of our demise,
each step in disregard the binding
that ties us to our fate,
the dismissive hand and reckless steps
that proves how inept we are,
given a paradise tainted for cold steel and glass,
and warnings never struck a heart,
we, too busy building spires.

If half our effort were for love,
we would shine in the cosmos,
an example of true evolution,
yet restitution is all that waits, for all we have done,
our focus on technology and reward
outweighed the paradigm,
the forgotten search for peace and enlightenment,
a sight swept under the rug,
for some entitlement.

Transfixed by power and control,
leaders become the narcissists of old,
the Hitler s of a new generation, learned nothing,
just lost in a glazed glory of ultimate power,
playing God, to display the sour reality of their minds;
and now the stage is set,
nature’s wrath and regret is palpable,
capable of desolation alone,
and it’s a coin toss to see who will ignite the final blow.

As we in love’s embrace, pray for change,
somehow those men of such rage and amoral views, to fall,
before the buttons press the world into a last redress,
when its too late to amend the wrongs already done,
a war lost, which no-one won,
and instead we all bleed for our imperfect being,
so many blind, but still some seeing the truth,
and as the curtain falls, sorrow links us,
binds us to our lost cause.
