You want what you can’t have Reasoning somehow that seems more valuable Abandoning those who do love you Because who would want to love you, right? So you chase phantoms, try to rewrite history Harvest lost souls like shiny objects, glinting in the sun All the while they are burning your retina, so you cannot see the truth The truth that’s been right in front of your face All along

Where once there was nothing Sprouts delicate symbiosis Emergent energy intertwined Into nature’s tangled tattings Blue green as earth’s beginnings With antediluvian memories Surrounding us unnoticed In a lichen lace soliloquy

We are living in a time When personal choices Can impact so many others As a matter of life or death, Disparity never so clear Selfishness disguised as freedom, Choosing economy over humanity Is the real tragedy Because if we let go of man made doctrines, Reject the fear of scarcity And instead embrace abundance, If we focus on taking care of one another Everything will be all right
