The Eco System


In this, the land of the living,

everything is inevitably dying.

I was lead to believe

that part of the reason for our being

is to leave a legacy of a better quality of life

for the next generation.

Renewal rather than extinction.

We’re at odds with ourselves

about the concept of self-preservation,

and so it seems human nature cannot sustain

the act of conservation

and so we stay in the familiar course of endangerment

and bypass altruism.

I am uncertain if  Mother nature will continue to be so forgiving.
