Here is to the
spherical mass meant to provide
for all life as we know it. Don’t question it,
just be grateful for it. It doesn’t ask for much. Maybe
to disregard greed? Treat it with respect as it gives you
life, something respect wouldn’t even exist without? But no,
perhaps that is too much to ask from the human race, scaring the
Earth to make a mere name- A name!!! - for themselves. Priorities,
yes? We exhaust the earth, then tell ourselves it’s overpopulation and
turn to space exploration: “Find another planet to sustain life.” But is that
really necessary? We don’t need to search, we need to only conserve
and appreciate. That’s all. No rocket science needed! Literally. The fossil
fuels won’t last forever despite common belief. Excessive release of the
harmful greenhouse gases will also play a role, too. The ice is melting
and we happily ignore it. How long can we play this game? The earth
wasn’t made to sustain this. It was meant to sustain beauty. Humans
have a knack for abusing that. “Beauty isn’t given, it is created-
created by us, judged by us, liked by us.” For what? A name,
of course! What is more important than a name and some
green paper? Well, let me tell you something, some-
thing important. A name won’t keep us here.
A name won’t preserve beauty.
Only love will.
