We, the People?

by shanti

We are all connected

The entire universe is connected. As we nurture ourselves to grow, the planet will grow. If we continue to destroy ourselves, and each other The planet will die

This is our home

We are not meant or made for another planet This is our planet We made this world with our own two hands and minds We built cities and innovated technology Right here

Why do we want to leave it behind?

Who do we want to lose it? If you've lived in one home for all of your life Put all of your love into that place how is it that easy to desert it? To pack up ship and leave

To not even try?

To destroy it. Do you not like your life on Earth? Are we as human beings not happy enough? Why are we so greedy? Why is it always take, take, take, Give me more!

The cup is never filled

It is never enough. Humanity is a bottomless pit, and we are not even trying to dig the dirt around us To save ourselves.
