We called ourselves wise
But are we really
We look at the world and all its splendor
And most can only think of what it could do for you
The forest, the ocean, the mountains, and the deserts.
Places of life and beauty, yet we only see what is convenient.
All we do is take and claim what we think is valuable,
If we even notice.
Technology is the ‘greatest ’ invention
The controllers of our attention
Always on your phone, tablet, or computer.
Take a photo, tweet your amazement,
Look at me look at what I am doing.
See where I am.
But are you really there
Are you really experiencing Life’s wonder?
Are you seeing nature for its truth
and not what you have decided it is
Do you understand the balance do you see the toll
We are thought the ‘top’ of the food chain.
But by whose authority?
You have so much to learn.
