Before I took my break to paint, and chill out from the world events, I had wrote this poem adding the pictures more recently to its words.. This reflected my feelings at the time, which along with other events brought my own energy into a downward spiral..
If you click on some of the pictures hopefully it will send you to the relevant stories which sparked my thoughts..
The world is Changing, and always has been.
How are you handling change?
We are all of us now more aware of changes because Change appears to be happening ever quicker in our lives, compared with our Grandfathers time period.
What struck me was how when I was down I was starting to get caught in the trap of viewing things from a negative perspective.. I was allowing myself to get caught in other peoples drama’s.. This reality is not my truth.. and I hope in forthcoming posts to explain why for a time I forgot and why it came as another ‘Sign’ for me to open myself up for Change.. So that I can not only pull myself up, but I can hopefully guide others who feel swamped by events which are happening around them.. For its often only through turmoil that we then find a pathway to peace… Below is my poem.
Are we ready to Change? And are we ready to listen to our hearts?
Listen! do you not feel your heart beat
Tell me, how well do you sleep?
As we spread the disease of greed far and wide
Have we a conscience that pricks us inside
Listen! as the rains floods the plains
Do you not feel what runs in her veins
The poisons, the acid, the stabs in her back
Have you not felt her fury as the ground begins to crack?
Listen! do you not hear the sound
Can you not sense it all around?
Is not the air full of static?
I know it’s not me, my thoughts erratic
Listen! can you not hear her rumble
Do not your senses feel her grumble?
Have you not felt her tears of snow and rain?
Can you not sense the searing pain?
Listen! to what our Ancestors once said
As the snake eats its tail and the skins we have shed
The Symbols and Signs are showing the way
Listen! not to me or the words of my Poem
Look around you for this is your Home
A planet of beauty, a living library of life
Why do we not see our disrespect causes strife?
Listen! as Volcano’s are venting their clouds of ash
While Stock Markets rise, readying for the Big Crash
Countries are caught in the nets of debt
Are you waking up people Are you ready yet?
Listen! do you not sense her mournful cry
How did we get to live in this lie?
Why don’t we see the damage we do?
As we tare the fabric of Gaia in two
Listen to your heart, please send out love
For we are being watched from way up above
It’s never too late to alter our ways
It begins Now not in some distant days..
At the end of the day, We and Earth are ONE!..
