Living An Agenda Poem by Adryan Rotica


The thickest walls
are within the mind
killing our future
with the promise of
modernity
when our basic needs
are food and sanitation.

These economic
dinosaurs
they live in
extreme materialism,
a house of cards...

What about climate change
killing our future
in the prospects of
the worlds bread basket?

This in itself is
robust enough
to be the truth of
our reality.

    everything is mind
    and the greatest task
    how is mind liberated?
    and this question
    haunts the terrible
    future
    if freedom is not
    acquired
    when no golden cloth
    shall be able
    to clothe
    forlorn flesh
    trembling in darkness
    far from the infinite
    a wonderful poem (Report) Reply

    Couldn't agree more. We are living in dark times as far as gloval conciousness is concerned. I work for the Roma people in Europe, who have been slaves and low lifes for 800 years.
    Good poem! (Report) Reply
