Stop the Madness…

Mother Earth, Oceans,

Lakes, Rivers, Air, in unity

with my soul; goodness,

wickedness the choices

we make gives us warmth

of spirit or a life frightening

and cold.

Morning, noon and sunset a

tingling of a new season in the

air, sighs of contentment,

burning wood; gathering of

boughs with the mist clinging to

your face like a lovers kiss.

Ah, this world is wonderful from

shadows to sunlit heights; we can

give or take, make or break fellow

human beings; give hope or

disintegrate with sadness or

delight.

We can gaze upon a world of deep

mysteries’ with love and caring in

our heart; we can impose death,

downfall, bring friend and foe to

their knees; we can destroy, rip

this world apart.

I chose to inspire the desperate,

remove their dark hope, bring

light; leave gentleness behind as

I walk into the night, wipe away

the tears of children, bring hope

to those in despair…I believe it is

time to stop this madness and

show each other that we care.

  1. You are so nice. There are not always great choices. But I agree on one thing, I don’t want to pay with my soul for a choice.

    There’s an interesting documentary on German soldiers in the Third Reich. Concerning the war crimes they committed and their own feelings while they did what they did. Two soldiers shot a group of unarmed and innocent Jewish women and children. One of the soldiers said, he was only shooting the children, and he considered that a good deed. If he wouldn’t have shot them, they would have been orphans. And his friend shot all the mothers and considered it a good deed. because they would have suffered if they lost their children. That’s how people can convince themselves to do things. Those soldiers did not feel guilty at all. They did not even see the choice of not shooting anyone. I understand that they probably would have been shot if they wouldn’t have obeyed. But it was a choice. They rather convinced themselves in an absurd way that their choice WAS good for everybody. The human mind can be scary.
