Elemental Humanity

Updated on April 23, 2012

To the four corners...

Singing to the people

hoping they listen

knowing the chance is rare

putting forth a thought

fit to entrance.


Long has man

split their neighbors in fours

trying to understand how they tick

time marches on

here is hoping that the gears won't stick


to the rocks, stone

salt of the earth

stable you are and stayed

seeking to rise or see what you can

long will you maintain any grade

not changed by man

though many have tried

by pressure you move

heat you are refined

you have a part to play

it is time


To the water,

flowing or stagnant

Avoiding the rocks

and other nasty stuff

won't get you where you need to be

though it is your nature to flow

your tendency to abrade

any who try to keep you still

it doesn't really matter

you need strength!

to flow even higher.

keep you pure for the Day.

Come seek the fire

that cant be put out

become mighty

that nothing stand in your way.


To the wind,

long have you played

seeking the thrills

the fun to enjoy

not worrying about the morrow

there you cant stay

too easily corrupted you are

you smell like liquor

and ash trays

seek He that can heat you

drive out the devils

and teach you

where you should blow

there is a dream for you to chase

and you are perfect for the pace

a firestorm you will have in toe


and finally to the fire

long you burn and consume

you must for it is your nature

burning hot or cold doesn't matter

but striving and doing

is what you always do.

The world needs you most of all

but equally as the other three too

there is much to consume and tear down

then build it anew

In the way it should have been


So to the four corners

the people of the earth

your time has come to awake

there is much to accomplish

a place to build

enemies to vanquish

a work to do

what do you say?


A thought rare

proposed to you

four corners must become one

connected we are

divided we are no more.
