The landscape of reality these days

Is littered well beyond the natural realm

Of expectations, needs and ways –

And daily feeds us overwhelm.

Facts stand firmly on their own two feet.

And yet, we have become obsessed

And trade, for comfort’s sake, defeat

Of heart and mind with which we are blessed.

The very life within us calls,

A whispering voice of urgent plea:

Awaken, now, tear down the walls

To tame the fears, to set us free.

Omnivorous lover of life with interests from poetry/literature and science to geopolitics, health and art. IFB.
