Are we the epitome of
All creation, 
The jewel on the crown 
Of living beings,


Inadvertently have we turn 
Into a cancerous tumor that
Constantly threatens 
The invincibility of 
Mother Nature?


Are we destined to carry our
Civilization to every corner of
The universe,


Are we fated to help the  
Metastasis of our cancerous world
To every planet on which
We would land?


Is it really progress this technological 
Civilization of ours, 
When it has become synonymous  
With the destruction of the 


Should we consider progress as the:
Harmonious coexistence with
The environment and the
Effort we ought to make to elevate 
The human race to the heights of 
Spiritual attainment? 

After giving our answers, 
Let each one of us,
According to his consciousness 

Surely, we would DESERVE
The outcome!

    I think we should coexist with the environment, and should work to save our planet from our damaging ways! This is just my opinion! It is our fault that the Earth is is the shape it is in, so we should be the ones to fix it! I loved reading your insightful poem this afternoon! What a powerful piece, you sure can come up with some great poetry Demetrios! Great Work!!
