Dark Waters

As we trudge through these dark waters…

Dragging our feet

Misguided…

This troubling light guides us

Dragging us through the pain…

I long for freedom

Wings to take flight…

To remove me

To lift me…

But we can not ignore these things

That trouble us in the night…

Longing for relief

Instead, deeply steeped…

The Earth Is In Crisis… But There Is Hope

I turn 51 in a few days, so I’ve been around long enough to hear people around the world talk about Climate Change for at least 20 to 30 years.

And now the youth is hitting the streets, with over 4 Million World Wide showing up for Climate Change Marches around the world a couple days ago

The clearest thing about Climate Change, is it’s gone beyond the point where people are crying out for the need, it’s now hit a point where effects from our current Climate are starting to show up all over.

The View From Our Home Last Year Just Prior To Evacuating

From breaking Heat Records, to rampant moving Fires (Which I experienced myself last year, living in California… I couldn’t believe how quick the Fires moved)

And the list goes on

It’s a time where Environment and Climate really need to be at the for front of all of our minds, and until governments and all of us fully engage in reducing our Carbon Footprint Etc., I’d recommend figuring out what you can do to support companies that are better for our earth, and leaders who plan on being aggressive about trying to save ourselves.

Because we’re running out of time.

Thanks for listening, this is a Creative Writing Blog for the most part, but like I say, I feel the Earth and our Climate need to be at the for front of our thoughts, and more than that, our actions.

Crystal Eyes

I Remember everything you are…

All we were meant to be

My Love for you grows stronger…

Never alone

I Took the fall…

I felt small

I’d dance with you again…

My heart’s so low

I wish I could see the Light…

Surrounded by endless night

I rise one last time…

Hope in my heart

Blood in my eyes…

Wrecked

Things Are Hard

Things Are Hard

Are we truly alone…

Dancing the same song

Was this ever real…

Destined to be alone

I can’t say I’m surprised…

Words written in the skies

Dark… Deep… Violet nights

Staggering… Falling

Crying… Calling

It’s not that you don’t care

But you’re not there

Earth Crisis

Growing up you hear people talk about if we don’t change this or that, our children won’t have a planet to live on… Or at least not one that is doing well. At 50, I’ve spent the first half of my life hearing these things… Watching these things. So many Sci-Fi Movies and Stories are based on Humans dragging the planet though the coals in one way or another, leading to Global Destruction… The Stories often take place after these facts. Where most of the planet have become Scavengers, and a large majority of the planet simply didn’t survive. The Horrific thing is, life has begun to feel like a Pre-Sci-Fi World, as we watch one Ecological problem after another stack up. I’ve always felt that the Earth’s, and People’s biggest challenge is, and will continue to be, our Population. And to a degree, it still is. But the truth is, our Populations is also our greatest Strength… Meaning, if we make movements together, we could still change all of this. I realize it’s easier to turn off the T.V., and continue living Status Quo… The problem is, there are ‘powers that be’ managing parts of the world, not based on what we need, or want… But based on Greed. This post isn’t designed to call these people/governments etc. out, this post is designed to Inspire/Reinvigorate people into action… Meaning, educate yourself asap, find out what you can do that will help some of these current global crisis’s stop, or slow down long enough for us to change these things around… We need to Elect those that our on board with Reality, we need to buy products from people/companies that think about all of us, not just money. I’m all for Capitalism, Goals, Economic Strength, but not at the expense of our home… The Planet. The sad thing is, this Post isn’t from someone who is extremely Right or Left, this post is from someone who is an Earthling, and is truly worried about all of us… Truly. As it is those that are younger than I have been born into a world of crisis. This is no longer a time to just enjoy our lives, our own little worlds, and shut off the T.V. when large global issues come on. We can still enjoy our own little worlds, but we need to also incorporate our actual planet, and the rest of the human race into our day to day… It’s the only chance we have at turning this thing around.

The Truth

THE TRUTH

The truth is, there is something we can do about what’s happening

It’s just a matter of figuring out what that is, and doing it

Do what works for you

Unfortunately, we just can’t afford to wait around for others to make the changes

It’s just not working

Be Strong

Be Fearless

Carry on
