Flying above it all

Fly like and eagle

Soar through the clouds,

Look down upon earth

It is hard to be proud,

So many people scurrying around

Just like ants we cover all of the ground,

Rainforests are shrinking

Just like the ice in the Arctic,

We need a paradigm shift

We need to find a way to spark it,

I see from up here the poverty

Favelas, ghettos and slums,

I wonder when this suffering will be done,

Then I smell the stink of power

The rich and the greedy in their finery,

Exploiting the needy by the hour,

But I also see the beauty of nature

And as I drift away I will return later,

And hope to have answers that may turn things around

Down within societies on the ground,

And as I fly away I the sounds,

Of anguished shouts and babies cries

The sound of guns and bombs and I ask why,

It should be sounds of play and laughter

And everybody living happy ever after,

And as I go I see the world grow darker,

And I hope one day to return as the light increases

And I see and equal balance of all nature, and species,

And equal share for all people

Maybe it could be humanities sequal,

When change rips through our entire earth

And maybe we’ll see mankind’s true worth.

  1. Nicely done my friend. What will it take to silence the sound of starving children, war, and the utter destruction of our planet. Everyone will have to do their part. We are already almost out of time to save many places along the coast and enough water too. Very sad. I did tons of research before I wrote my book so by 2050 many places that exist now will not then. Thanks for making folks aware. Hugs 🫂 Joni

      1. I loved your poem and I believe that poets have a responsibility to talk about things just like this. You were right on my friend. Great stuff, everything is not apple pie and chocolate. Sending you lots of hugs. ❤️🤗🤗🤗🤗Joni

  2. It would be nice to make like an eagle and soar above it all. Unfortunately, we are stuck on the ground. There is hope because there is something in the human spirit that makes us want to soar.
