It is all about belonging isn't it ?
When we arrive to this world
we are clearly informed
of what belongs to what
and who belongs to who.
As toddlers we suck the nipples
that belong to us and we belong to them.
Later our nation, religion enters the picture.
We are introduced to our territories
our boundaries our designated areas
our identities are spelled out for us
our names, our numbers, our birthmarks.
It is assumed without any doubt
our Earth is divided amongst many nations
who have throughout the centuries
been fighting wars to defend
or expand their territories.
Then there is the issue of money
who has it and how powerful it can be.
Just about anyone will do
just about anything to obtain it.
It is so powerful it can even coherse people
into becoming willing slaves.
Could a new arrival to this life have a say
on how things should fare in this World?.
This is the established order, this is the way
imposed on us, we are locked in it!.
For suffering many, mortality is a relief
while to their masters with money, it is hell.
Life has an irony, the paradox is the reality
Is anyone in charge of the big picture
or are those who appear to be in charge
more concerned about their grip on power
rather than well being and justice for all?.
It is high time we sort our priorities
nature is a part of us, where we belong
obviously we blundered this time
may be we'll have a chance next time
providing there will be another time
up and down the curtain, for certain
this could end with joy or in pain
CHANGE IS INEVITABLE.
weather silk or butterfly we shall be
is partly up to us and partly chance
which comes with change, how strange.
SUCH IS THE BOTTOM LINE.
