Written within the pages of books.

Overlooking the extraordinariness of life
is easy when the answers
are all written within the pages of books
digested by your eyes
and shredded by your brain
to keep the information
from over piling.

There is a wonder to this universe
that we often forget
we get trapped within thought
within an arrogance
that there must be
a reason we’re here
we can’t just be chance
us these extraordinary beings
and yet here we are
a spark of life
and it evolves.

The universe is larger
than the squishy parts of us
can handle
disintegrating the facts
working at less than half capacity
because it’ll explode
if it connects with the universe
instead we rely
on another power
one that relieves the pressure
something to look up to
something else to pass the blame upon
something to ask help of.

Why can’t we accept ourselves?
Why can’t we make the changes?
Why can’t we protect life?
Why can’t we be the change?
Why can’t we protect
rather than destroy our home?

There is no ruler
lurking in the clouds
with a hand out
waiting for our cries
no that power is here with us
waiting for us to accept
our own strength
waiting for us to defeat the greed
and come together
to grow to expand
and be the change the universe needs.

Thanks for reading.
