What about the rest of the world?
The American Dream certainly seems like a dream
If WE aren’t what WE seem to be
What about what we see on the television screen
Read in some paper or learn in school?
History portrays hardships and the advancements we’ve made
Yet everyone’s a slave to SOME cause
Still the rich remain rich
The poor remain poor
To be rich is far more than your financials
Any other materialistic THING
To be rich is to flourish from nature
To be rich is to thrive from our uniqueness
Trusting that the planet and each and every creature
Will survive if we aren’t petty
Those without speech subtly show the beauty in collaboration
How a world without worry is possible
Vegetation’s manifestation of a creation seemingly above our nation
There is a hierarchy
Yet we are co-inhabitants of one planet
Visions of the top may be attractive
There’s just not enough oxygen to permit a clear head with clear thoughts
WE are nature!
