A breeze

Gusts of wind

Crashing of waves

Pouring skies


Forces of nature

Strong and harsh

Yet calm and mellow

No reasoning

Just action

Similar to us, humans

We don't think

We just do

And much like the damage nature does, we have damaged ourselves

We have damaged humanity

We are harsh

And unlike nature, we have no mellow

We are a cruel species


There are some of us that provide hope

Truly good spirits

Instead of modeling them

We merely tear them down and break them apart

Soon there will be no hope for us

We will have passed the point of no return

The only thing left is to pray

Pray humanity will change

Pray we can redeem ourselves

Before we ruin ourselves

I pray everyday

I look for those special spirits

And I encourage them to continue their actions

They will create a change

And I will help

So should you
