You are here for judgment by the Gods,
You may put faith in us, But We do not bear responsibility for your actions.
The Rock cries out to us today,
You may stand upon me, But do not hide your face.
The Sea butts us about today,
You may swim within me, But do not deny your inaction.
The Wind whines to us today,
You may use my power, But do not avert your eyes.
The Fire roars around us today,
You may use my warmth, But do not harden your heart.
Mother Earth accuses us today,
You may be birthed by me, But do not expect a gentle Eden.
Humanity flails around, Still playing King of the hill, No Age of Aquarius in sight.
Siblings fighting over every toy, Wreaking havoc wherever we go.
Can we evolve, Grow up, Come together, Save ourselves?
144 words, without the title.
Written for Prosery 1/20/20: “The Rock cries out…”
This one is a prose poem I believe…
Prosery this week ask us to incorporate the following quote;
“The Rock cries out to us today, You may stand upon me, But do not hide your face.”
