Vexed Upon Humanity
The human race is an abomination
Despite their fate, in the stars-
Mapped out in the constellation,
all they do is infect their world.
Atlas struggles to hold the world up.
Sweat seeps from his pours,
His muscles ache.
What would happen if he quit?
Would the Earth share the same fate as Humpty Dumpty?
The fear of it shattering in millions of pieces seems like an inevitable fate now.
Temptation chips away at Atlas’s hope
That humans will one day hold this weight up on their own.
Demons snap at his feet.
Hades laughs at his struggle.
Why must Atlas persist?
Why push through agony to save a damned species?
Like everything else, mankind cannot escape their fate.
Perhaps they deserve this fate I have dreamt.
I have studied this curious creature
Through un-bias eyes.
So many are impaired by their hubris,
Their own foolishness.
Those learned ones see as I do
But are muted by the noise of the world.
The pleasures of humanity
Distract the forces of life
That everyone must see.
See, in order to escape from the
Inevitability of self destruction.
Enjoy the beauty of your mother earth.
Enjoy the elements of the world.
The stars, sun and sky are wondrous.
Dance in the rain.
Music is the universal translator, enjoy it.
Realize you are just a speck of dust in a giant’s eye.
Although small, you have the potential to do great things.
I see vain kids, thinking they are so fantastic
‘cause they can cause people pain.
Can you image what it would feel like to starve to death?
To be cast into a life not your own?
I cry for all the pain in your world.
All things are always changing,
You can too.
Before man thought himself to be a great being,
He was just a seed.
Strength grew into him.
He, looking upon his muscles grew conceded.
Then he, started not only to hurt his own, but his fellow creatures too.
These poor innocent animals.
You use ‘em and murder ‘em,
But you don’t even need ‘em.
Adopt the teachings of Pythagoras.
You shall see that your mother grew food for you
Whose weight bores down bending branches.
There are grapes for you that swell on green vines and pleasant herbs.
Greens too, which are made soft and mellow with cooking.
All things free from treachery.
Earth is generous with food that requires no blood-shed.
You make the evils your partners in the abomination,
Saying they love the blood of bulls in heaven.
Shall flesh be the tomb of flesh?
One living creature shall not live on the death of another.
Time devours all things.
Do not go looking far and wide,
Indulging in worldly pleasures.
For blood shall not nourish blood.
The slow gnawing of time consumes all things.
Death is only ceasing of what there were before.
Enjoy life and do not waste time looking for wasteful things.
For what you need is in front of thee.
Aphrodite opens her arms, offering love that will cure all.
Accept her gift,
Do not let Athena tempt you
No love shall come from war.
Violence cures nothing.
No good come from cannons and firearms
Meaning to do harm.
For love is like water.
Water carves through the thickest of stone.
Take these gifts we of intellectual superiority have given you.
Use them to your advantage.
Perhaps mankind can change their fate.
We are the wind.
Do not fight us for we can direct
You down a different path.
Maybe, and only then, will mankind
No longer ignorantly float down the river toward self-destruction.
