Long distance call

Updated on July 14, 2012

Calling a distant tomorrow

Will any human be there

I'm in and of a time

when your chances we my spare

Though we're waking to the limits

That this tiny world can stand

It is no certainty we won't foul it with our own hand

Which is why I'm calling age

When I don't know if you will be

For I want you there to read this

As it matters much to me

This poem was a response to the many abuses I saw happening in the world around me. A hope and wish we can grow beyond our fossil fuel dependent profligate culture that seems to be pervading the rest of the world. We need to make the decision to step beyond our current toys of our modern culture so we leave a better place for our childrens' childrens' children.

      for such a heavy subject, it's kind of sweet.
