The Awakening of Our Species

The Awakening of Our Species
The Awakening of Our Species

The cracks, long enduring,
now shudder in the wake of each day’s falling,
dust, in minuscule amounts at first,
fall from the openings,
and each moment in time exacerbates the last,
as words like bullets fly,
actions in deaths name scar souls,
and the world is hurting,
tears flowing like the rivers of old, once
untainted by narcissism and iterative lies.

The cracks are widening,
stability waning in light of the shadows cast,
and the world is wondering,
just how long this can last,
a world without heart, without compassion,
driven by soulless leaders
who give rise to the redefining of insanity,
the epitome of absurdity,
in their striving for self without reason,
weather without season.

Those pillars will fall,
set so long ago on sandy ground,
and like Sampson, it all will come down,
the punishment long standing in Karmic bounds,
for the balance so long lost,
at nature’s expense, so many sad events
that belittle humanity, show the arrogance,
the selfishness of human greed,
and so I pray, when time deems fit,
the falling will not take everything.

For there is good in man,
potential awaiting deliverance,
far greater than those who choose to rule
with ulterior motives,
cold heartless souls of self alone,
power and wealth the drone of their mantra,
and spirituality but a weakness they despise
in their quest for ultimate rule,
and so I stand for the possibilities,
the awakening of our species.

    I have faith in the possibilities of man for I believe:
    “For there is good in man,
    potential awaiting deliverance,
    far greater than those who choose to rule”

    Great work, Tony, and very encouraging / inspirational.
