Saving the World
The world spins on it's own axis
The moon and stars slip silently
Across an unmarked sky
Galaxies forming the very space
Which they inhabit.
And rivers run to the sea
And the Lilly awakens from it's slumber
In answer to some unseen alarm clock.
And man can stand amidst this wonder
And not be overcome in awe
Of it's self perpetuating perfection
And not be humbled by it's secret knowingness
His arrogance revealed
In harmony that he can only mimic
Beauty that he an only surrender to
Wisdom that he can only dream of
The world does need saving
This is what the own has been preaching
This is why the Earth shakes'
The smug smiles from our faces
Why the ocean swallows our homes
And stakes it's own claim.
A thousand miracles a second
Are happening inside your body
And you have nothing at all to do with it
Let it be
For God's sake, let it be.
