I long for a life where the wilderness strives
One where unity is the focus of our lives
Living with the trees, instead of cutting them down
No more pollution, in which we all drown.
A wild world with life so lush
No corporations, or a 9 to 5 rush.
I want to feed a moose from out of my hand,
And walk barefoot on pristine sand.
I want to breathe fresh air full of natural scent
Not have a landlord screaming for rent
Unfortunately that dream life is unattainable
Because our society is far from sustainable.
But I don’t want to be found.
I’m in distress….
But I’ve never been happier.
I see a world burning,
But I don’t feel the heat.
I smile and I laugh,
While the planet is in retreat.
There’s a voice that says “do something”
But every time I try, I go in reverse.
I’ve given up and focused on me,
I was fighting against an incurable disease,
That crippled my mind, in a time of need.
Now I don’t care if our species succeeds.
My cares have vanished,
Im not the same,
My soul has been banished,
Into a world of the insane.
A stricken match to light,
The glow of my inner fire,
The match is the souls fight,
The escape a burning pyre.
The fire was for illumination,
But instead I got burned.
History causes damnation,
Of lessons I refused to learn.
I try to shed light on events,
Escape from a darkened past,
Hastily put up a defence,
And get burned twice as fast.
Healing always causes a scar,
Flames of past sear skin…
Once your burned to the charr;
Your freedom will finally begin.
I beg the gods for sleep.
Maybe I’ll wait for my death.
As I constantly remember what I reap.
It slowly takes away my breath.
Burdens in the form of memory,
Haunting me so I cannot rest.
Things I wish I would not see,
Keep me strung out and really stressed.
The pain that comes with selfless acts,
The type of person for sacrifice;
For a better world I’ll face the axe.
For a better world I’ll pay the price.
My life to give, to better yours.
Until my death, I’ll watch the horrors.
