It can become worse of course;
pure potential is vast at source.
Still, fearful anticipation of fear,
only serves to make all unclear.
And surely it can get better too,
by choice of what is right to do.
If we lift the veil upon the mind,
there is Freedom of a true kind.
It can become worse of course;
Essentiality at risk of being lost,
as we seek equality at any cost.
If we are forced to be the same,
the unique spirit emerges tame.
Without the capacity for seeing,
the ever innate value of a being.
While measured and restrained,
may true humanity be retained?
Escape from Responsibility;
the grand exercise in futility.
In the web of lies we weave,
it is ourself we truly deceive.
As the ‘my freedom’ illusion;
a union forged in confusion.
Our shared plight is aligned;
we’re all deeply intertwined.
Only a way for all to be Free
protects the right to Liberty.
For all of you who want to reign in Hell,
I got terribly disappointing news to tell:
That throne has countless contenders;
the true heirs thrive on you pretenders.
And as your usefulness certainly ends,
you will be backstabbed by old friends.
All that you so lust to have and control,
will turn to ash at the cost of your soul.
Must the whole world perpetually burn,
before you at long last accept to learn?
Where our beliefs will not let the mind go,
there true imagination cannot either flow.
As the Natives couldn’t see the big ships,
the invaders had their perception eclipse.
Intimate with travel and conquering feats,
yet estranged to our Mother’s heart beats.
With Ancestors alike their New World kin,
still what they saw was a world full of sin.
And as it had befallen their people before,
they lay waste to those beyond the shore.
Thus yet another great Paradise was lost;
the rejection of Nature has a terrible cost.
Continuity with a price increasingly steep;
the Old World wound is ancient and deep.
Our innate spirituality violently up-rooted,
with intuition & conscience all but muted.
The broken always seek a reality remake;
to be whole again, or for all else to break.
And now, that choice falls on us to make;
past guilt and blame, for everyone’s sake.
Even if the dissociation is a mastered art,
we are still all Native in body and at heart.
For every effect there is always a cause;
why precedes what and thus it ever was.
A Natural Law regulates all connectivity;
harmony is the domain of responsibility.
So then what about “ignorance is bliss”?
Blind repetition and a refusal of what is.
Know thyself, and what you give rise to;
this is the least and utmost one may do.
Hello again! said the boot to the face,
stamping atop in a pretence of grace.
Offering wonderous gift-wrapped lies:
all you want, so long as freedom dies.
With followers obeying what they say,
to power despots will carve their way.
Masked like rulers, queens and kings;
marionettes pulled by unseen strings.
Fear, greed, ignorance or false cause;
the fuel for any tyranny that ever was.
An old story told by unheeded voices;
perchance time for different choices?
Nevermore serve slavery and murder;
draw the line – this far but NO further!
Surely if humanity grows a backbone,
any would-be tyrants will stand alone.
Carried by the winds to a distant land,
burried deep beneath the golden sand,
or sunk under the sea far from strand?
Or be it by cowardice, pretense, vanity,
ignorance, betrayal or kindred insanity,
that we lost so much of our humanity?
You may genuinely feel that it’s unfair,
perhaps too much of a burden to bare;
still, this predicament is ours to repair.
Each fully responsible to do their best;
should we persevere through this test,
with true integrity may we be blessed.
Courage is not the absence of fear, strength of character is not the lack of temptation.
They are always choices.
Whoever you were, whoever you are: you are not damned, nor are you beyond forgiveness.
This reconciliation is the challenge before us; much humbleness and compassion is required.
Beyond this awaits true humanity; the kingdom of Love.
