A Circle Broken

This grain of sand, a mere speck of dust

Might be a diamond?

We inhabit as our possession and our right

To spoil the air

To foul the water

To scar the mountains’ majesty

To gray the color of paradise

To sentence life to death

We cannot share this gift granted us by whom?

We are homo sapiens, so we think

When we cannot have what we want

To dominate to subjugate to take dominion

We preach love and grant the unborn rights

And say we love the Earth

And so we do

To death

This grain of sand, a mere speck of dust.

Someone else’s diamond.

  1. Definitely, we as humans have never quite fully realized our responsibility nor our purpose as caretakers on this revolving planet, our earthly Home!
    I keep getting irritated at people who say it is a “conspiracy” that we are losing ice at the Poles, that we are losing oxygen, animals and foliage. Extinction is what we deserve, many of us at least.
    You expressed this so well, James.
