After We Destroy Ourselves
Copyright Lauri Ann Lumby
Today I’m hearing (and feeling) the cries of the world.
Too much death.
Too much violence.
Too much destruction –
and not enough people who care.
Humanity looking away as another father buries his son –
Turning a deaf ear to the plaintive wails of the mother
who lost her child to the darkness of this world.
The world is burning and no one cares.
Except those who will profit from the flames –
White men wreaking havoc in a world where they don’t belong.
A world poisoned by greed,
Made toxic by lust – and not just of the sexual kind.
Man’s unbridled quest for power and ownership
of a world that belongs to no one –
Least of all them.
While humanity cries, Mother Earth is silent –
She has taken matters into her own hands.
“If these humans can’t care for me as I have cared for them….
Then they’ve got to go.
Goodbye stupid humans.
This experiment has failed.”
I wouldn’t blame Her if She shifted her poles and simply shook us free.
Starting over after the damage man has done has healed.
Earth always wins.
Humanity is an ignorant, selfish, self-centered species.
After 200,000 years, you would think we would learn.
But the rules of evolution are clear:
Figure it out or die.
The times we are in feel like the end of the human race.
After Mother Earth casts us off
or we do it to ourselves,
will another species rise to take our place?
If history is correct, I believe this will be so.
Perhaps we are already here.
If you are one who believes they will remain after the world has destroyed itself, or who believes they embody the seeds of the new species, consider joining our growing community. Love Warriors. Dragon Riders of the Apocalypse. The New Humans…..whatever name you want to give yourself. You are not alone!
