Let it Burn!

Make no Mistake!
The world is burning itself to the ground.
The “fall of Rome” on a global scale.
The end of what was born of fear, power and control
on the backs of the poor
benefiting the powerful few.
An unsustainable model –
We have created our own demise.
Let it burn.
We cannot save it, nor should we try.
But we can grieve.
We can grieve the loss of the life we have known.
We can mourn over the certain carnage that will accompany this dying.
We can weep for the lives and innocence (ignorance) lost.
As we witness the revelation of
The truth is being laid bare for all to see.
We may try to deny it, (denial is a face of grief)
But it will continue to knock on the doors of our hearts
Until we are able to listen
And feel sorrow
For those whose loss
has been another’s gain.
Will we be able to live with ourselves
After all the truths have come to light?
Will we be able to look our brother and sister in the eye?
Will we allow ourselves to feel the shame for
This is our moment of reckoning.
And we will decide if humanity survives to create a new world
The choice is simple
and the fate of humanity depends on this choice.
Continuing to choose separation guarantees our death.
Choosing Oneness will bring forth a whole new world.
What will you choose?
