Emergent Possibilities

Untitled

Life beckons an awakening.
A lucky consciousness arrives.

The clan stakes a claim.
It begins again.

Walk, talk, survive.
Try to thrive.

Fun, work, and responsibilities.
It’s about balance, or not.

What do you choose?

Deeds in memories questioned.
Achievements and greatness or pain and defeat?

What do you leave behind?

The Battle

Untitled

Hate. It’s insidious. Globally it’s been creeping back into our societies. We need to counter it in ways which protect and further goodness rather than reduce us in being the people who are the enemy.

But what does that look like?

Honestly, I don’t even know. I just feel that I’m not ready for the battle.

I imagine so many are feeling the same way. That is what might be the biggest problem facing us today. How do we get over feeling defeated and run-over? I wish that would change. But I don’t know if it can.

I’m left agonizing over what to do next. You too?

Civility’s Demise

ddddd

The value of the past eludes us.

The same mistakes on repeat.

Reflection would serve us well.

Empathy would too.

Oh, realize the worth of our tragic and harsh history!

Please only go forward, not back.

I worry for my children and future generations.

Sobbing, losing hope with each act of terror.

As I watch this world becoming one of hate and destruction,

I feel defeated.

Filled with sadness,

I still love.

But is it enough?
