For Greater Good


Nature sometimes

needs technology

and technology

is beautiful when

it helps nature

endure and prosper.

 

When the right minds

get together

and learn how much better

a plant can be tended

to and harvested for

greater good for greater

survival

that is one example of when

technology too

is beautiful.

 

Things are not so beautiful

when mass plantings for

mass production cause

mass sickness and mass

destruction all in the name

of a marketed label that

serves an empty future

to a household table.

 

Let machines and gadgets

evolve but let the products

of nature do the same in

ways that add to a greater

natural good

not a tasteless

hidden

shame.

In Winter

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — Tags: , — migueltio @ 8:21 am

Winter winds

and snows rage

as the grey days linger on.

 

Snow gives way to

ice not so nice

on the roads or nearby trails.

 

Branches fall under

the icy weight causing

damage to trees, wires, and homes.

 

Why is winter so icy so

cold so icy so bitter putting

us on a vice grip hold.

 

So much too about the life

we have known seems to have

frozen our skins clear to the bone.

 

They expect our children

to attend schools

while they have no intention

of supplying the tools

instead spending out on

their chartered jewels

to lead they appoint

educational fools

who have no conception of

the necessary rules

thinking children’s brains

are only shadowed remains

that float aimlessly

like stagnant pools.

 

We are at an intellectual winter

much colder

icier

than nature’s season

of snow

we cannot let them freeze

our children’s futures

from the right and means

to learn and grow.

A Path Toward Ignorance


He walks alone along
the parkway of forgotten souls
they ravage in hunger
after a future unattainable
he avoids looking their way
not desiring the gaze of
their eyes so fixed with want.
They reach to grab his
ankles as he increases the
determined pace of his
direction determined to
avoid interaction with
them knowing their fate
he wishes avoidance for himself.
He envisions their lives
surrounded only by the
garbage of disposal and
despair thinking his own
life is above it all and
purified not aware of
the cracks beneath as the
world becomes more gentrified.
He walks out of a neighborhood
and into another
not able to tell who is
his sister or brother personalities
whitewashed into the gutter
in favor of the product
of the corporate cookie cutter.
Where is his next turn
to the next block
letting it continue to burn or
can he look into these souls
desiring to help their
plight ahead with compassion
and care as concepts he can learn?

Faulty Numbers


Day after day
we are bombarded with numbers,
numbers in technology
numbers in chip memory
numbers of always
rising prices
of the cost of more
frivolous
brain draining
devices.

Are numbers all
there is to
thinking
should numbers be
the only juice our
minds should be drinking
are numbers the only
factor we should
be digesting
are numbers alone
what our hearts should
be investing?

SHOULD WE BELIEVE THAT
EVERY PERSON IS ONLY WORTH
A NUMBER???

Numbers cannot
FEEL
Numbers cannot
HEAL
Numbers cannot increase
someone’s loving
APPEAL
Numbers cannot
SMILE
Numbers cannot
LOVE
Number cannot take place of
what God gives from
ABOVE!

Numbers cannot
replace rain
with sunshine
Numbers cannot
make someone
sick feel
fine.

Numbers alone
cannot enhance
personal expression.
They should only be
A PART
of what we have in
real possession.

Numbers may solve
a problem on paper
numbers may answer
a question on
the smart board
but numbers alone
cannot represent,
Dear Lord,
WHO WE REALLY ARE
WHAT WE CAN REALLY DO,
THIS IS WHY OUR OFFICIALS
HAVE NOT A REAL CLUE
WHEN THEY SAY
WHAT THEY SAY
THEY ARE GOING TO DO
TAKING FUTURE HOPES
FROM THE MASSES WHO
WORK HARD FOR
BETTER TIMES
BUT MAY NEVER
SEE THEM THROUGH!!
