A Better View

A Better View

                                                      Winter’s Coming ~ Philip Brent Harris


It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation, and world over wealth.


I often wonder, how did we get into this mess,
I mean, we did not choose to grow our brain.
Who chooses to confront predators, its stress,
Sharp fang and claw, able to cause acute pain?

Where else in the universe, would you suppose,
evolution played this little joke, what survived?
It is not a joke or experiment, just how it goes.
Philosophy I read years ago, my mind revived.

Apple trees grow apples, dogs produce puppies.
True to this equations, our universe has people.
Varieties of apples, natures, from us to guppies.
Come to grips with this under dome or steeple.

Swear we’re the cosmos’ definition of success.
Stretches my imagination to the breaking point.
Until we all get along, dynamic tension no less,
or make Earth unlivable and abandon the joint.

Gaia may cull our bulk; it has five times before.
Mass extinctions on a global scale nothing new.
Whether we all depart or reach that distant shore,
Is in our evolution, to find our new, better view.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
