Age Group: Adult
Bound by chains of duty, imprisoned by artificial responsibilities
I yearn for the freedom to walk the world‘s wild places.
To seek things unknown and dwell out beyond the fringe of civilization.
Silence and nature’s peace I seek, far from the crushing idiocy of mankind.
Where I won’t drown in the reverberations of his so often empty choices.
To tread the high places once more, to hear naught but birdsong and wind.
To breathe crystal air and feel the Mother’s bones beneath my feet.
To really live…as once we lived…with heart and connection..
To see the interplay of animals moving through their intricate rituals of life.
To be finally free of the pathetic whine that is mankind’s song.
The beauty of simple things they’ve forsaken, acquisition and greed rules.
Better, flashier, bigger, more useless …is the mantra of modern man.
His religion is plunder coupled with a never ending appetite for self-destruction.
Sadly he will never be satisfied until he has devoured everything that is good.
Religion masquerades now as a social club presenting god as a cosmic ATM.
Churches are become the pious bastion of pomposity and fear mongering.
Working at keeping people’s hearts in thrall, and their minds fast asleep.
Conformity to mediocrity rules all, creating blinders for life’s journey.
So mankind misses the treasures that surround him, seeing only the profits.
And never the beauty that is one of the Mother’s greatest gifts to us.
“What will it profit a man to gain the world if he forfeits his soul?”
Perhaps this soul disconnect is what that Galilean fellow meant so very long ago?
