THIS is our calling...


THIS is our calling...

We must awaken to ourselves...
To each-OTHER...
To life...
To our MOTHER earth...
To the BIRTH of a greater creation...
From a place that runs deeper than MY blood...YOUR blood...OUR blood...
Deeper than the ancestors that connect us so DEAR...
Where LOVE overcomes FEAR...
A place, much deeper than the soul...
Where all is knowledge & wisdom...
where each of us is WHOLE...
Calling out to hearts, opened & closed, to minds, opened & closed, to eyes, opened, & closed...
HEAR my heart... FEEL my heart...YOUR heart...OUR heart...
We ARE one...
Connected by the trees & the earth, the moon, the stars, & the infinite energy that weaves & binds us together through our love, & also through our pain...
My brothers & sisters, near & far,
HEAR our calling...
The rain that falls,
The wind that BLOWS...
The beauty & destruction that FOLLOWS...
Let it remind us we are merely lease holders of all we SEE,
All we BREATHE,
& WE...
Who HAVE been set FREE...
To make the choices we so blindly choose...
Why do we continue to turn our CHEEK against the chaos which surrounds our planet, our lives, our homes, & our hearts...
We can't just talk we must ACT...
We need to push aside myth, hear FACT...
By realising we ARE one...
Your pain IS my pain...
This world is OUR world...
Its heartbeat is OUR heartbeat,
Pulsing through this EARTH...
Giving BIRTH to our future...
NOWS the time to come together...
Don't get caught up in the illusion that life lasts FOREVER...
It does not...
We are merely manifestations of a greater consciousness...
Let loose in this playground which is life...
We MUST recognise this truth & correct the corrupt-ness in ourselves, our hearts, our homes & our LAND...
We must choose to Make a STAND...
There IS hope for a peaceful change...
Don't allow tv, politicians, news, & those who wish to stay asleep to re-arrange the TRUTH...
They want you to forget...
They need you to falsely BELIEVE...
This is why they continue to FEED the sweet poison Into our hearts, minds & souls...
Making us forget our TRUE home...
Our TRUE goal...
We must journey WITHIN,
if we are to BEGIN again...
Does the destruction have to be so BAD,
Within our hearts,
Within our LAND,
Before we wake up to whats already too late?
Why must we HATE on each other?
This was never our FATE...
When the last leaf FALLS...
When the last bird CALLS...
When endangered is no longer a WORD to be HEARD...
Whats it's gonna TAKE for us to BREAK the patterns that WE weave through our precious existence?
They talk about a safe world then create MORE war & cause MORE PAIN...
Someone please EXPLAIN? ...
If you truly understand,
Raise your hand...
Surrender to each-OTHER with love & peace for one ANOTHER...
Lets do this together.
Together...
Together we shine the beauty of our light so much brighter, just as God intended.
Together we stop the FIGHT...
Our wrongs become RIGHT...
We ARE equals...
Look into each-others EYES,
The tears we each CRY unite us in the knowledge that this isn't how we want it to be...
You & ME can BOTH be the change we want to SEE...
The power that WE'VE been given was meant to be used to share love, peace & UNITY...

THIS, is our calling...

But first we need to wake up.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
