when the world is too much

August 9, 2019

/ when the earth is heating rapidly / & the air is thick with accusations / when oceans fill with plastic & empty of fish / when people are stacked at borders like refuse / as litter is shipped freely around the world / when the machine has become so huge  it extracts joy / from the very marrow of your bones / remember that / this planet survived ice age & fire / that the mountains are gods / that everything works in cycles / that endings precede beginnings / that no dream is meaningless / that every creation has value / that your lungs still expand / your heart still beats / & with that we will evolve / & with that we will heal /
