i start to sweat before you feel the warmth

Environmental activism
Is not environmental optimism.
It is the voice of greed
And it bleeds with the fear, the sorrow
Of human incapacity
to see
Beyond itself.

We die
Without grace
Clinging onto hope as if it were life.
Clinging onto self as if that alone were life.

But life amiss -
A mass of regret, our body and our soul
We take from this earth, all that we never owned.

Environmental activism
Is political propaganda
Unless you want to hear the earth's agenda

And the earth has none.
Yet why do we go on and on and on and on?

  1. Complex but interesting! I had the same thought. It's not a "good" thing to do really. It's more selfish than for any other reason!
