Unbelievable, Inconvenience, Mystical…

What an unbelievable,
Inconceivable,
Mystical world we live in.
What we know from the past,
Guides us through to the present,
And enables us to predict the future.
There are fountains of knowledge to draw from,
Information is what we need,
In order to move forward and proceed.
As we learn from our past mistakes,
People continue to burden us with more,
Stopping us in our tracks,
Having to handle that,
Before moving on.
Terrorist attacks,
Dictatorship,
Fake news,
Only being spoon fed part of current affairs,
Spin the bottle politics,
Law defying aristocracy,
Substance less influencers,
Over night celebrities,
I think it is fair to say,
We have lost our way.
Our planets always on the move,
But we are bumping heads and going nowhere.
We don’t have to go full communist,
But footballers are earning more in one week than the average family earn in a year,
Same goes for actors,
A listers,
Yet these celebrities appeal to us,
To dig deep into our slight and empty,
Unlike there never ending, Deep pockets,
Telling us to make a change to those without.
In this materialistic,
Shallow era,
People are ploughing forward,
Taking no time to reflect and stop.
As a nation we are murderers,
And the victims are ultimately ourselves.
All the plastic,
The toxic waste from cars,
And planes,
Our environment is imprisoned in chains.
Whatever you believe in,
Science,
Religion,
Conspiracy,
This planet is a gift ultimately,
And our lives are far from what they could be,
As most of us will never complete our destiny,
Because of ego’s,
Lack of gratitude,
Attitude,
Blind eyes to the past and facts,
Greed,
Recklesnes,
Being care free,
Ungrateful,
And blind to what we should see,
And could be,
Catapulting forward into a flame of obliteration,
Rather than taking time to learn and reflect,
Then perhaps healing some wounds,
And changing direction.
It’s just go, go, go,
Until no, no, no,
And so those able and aware of that,
Are living their best life,
With intent of a good life,
Not a long life,
Yet still having children.
If not for ourselves,
Then for them,
We need to stop,
Take a breath,
Recollect,
Reconnect,
Take care of each other,
And our planet.
We must take care of this gift we have been given,
Life,
Knowledge,
An unbelievable,
Inconceivable,
Mystical planet and world we live in.

Uncomfortable With The Great Unknown…

We allow ourselves to get lost in endless scenarios of pointless mayhem.
We indulge in money, wealth and materialistic attributes.
We make continuous mistakes.
We revel in hate, misery and jealousy.
We forget about those less fortunate then us.
We graft,
We climb,
We build,
We conquer,
Forgetting about nature,
Forgetting about love,
We strive for something other.
No room for errors,
Chance or mistakes.
We forget that we don’t know as to why we came about.
We can study,
Ponder,
Wonder about our existence,
In constant persuit of answers as to why we are here.
Perhaps as to why is not important,
Less important then just accepting,
Just honouring this wondrous gift.
Allow and embrace the uncertainty.
We know not why we are here or how long for.
We cling to reason, religion, theories, conspiracy,
Uncomfortable with the unknown.
Ranking ourselves above all.
Forgetting that we are insignificant,
Forgetting that we do not have control.
That we cannot begin to explain what we do not know.
Amongst shooting stars,
Endless solar systems,
Miles and miles of space,
What will be,
Will be,
And so just forget about the other stuff,
And try to be happy.
