When I look around, I see

Everyone is looking for something

Waiting, wishing, numbing the pain

Modern life can be a trap, a dirty ruse

Demanding growth, overconsumption, and exploitation

We have become monstrous, but we are blind

We have been disconnected from nature

And modern life wants us to stay this way

We are missing out

The wind through the trees, the birds in the air

The cricket's song in the night, the fireflies light

The stars in the sky that shine so bright

Feel your connection, Free your spirit

Help one another

Heal the land

Don't take more than you need

Enjoy the things that matter

Lest they dissapear



Thanks for reading!
