Here's Hoping

Here's Hoping

A Poem by Butch Decatoria

What motivates us? As a whole, though one world divided, we are a species sharing all that we are, with all that our Earth has made, with what we do,
even now when we behave not wholly but conflicted and blindly afraid.
So what motivates mankind then? Or are we all still individuals, living for our own selves, desperation in all our acts, hurriedly worried and lustfully hungry, barely finding purpose only when we are instructed to, like monkey see monkey do.
How miraculous to also find an identity, when we are made products of our environments, made to consume, purchasing the worth of time by others who choose for us how we should spend it.
Sadly it is a vicious cycle of conflict and war, when the hungry grow craving more, our world will be devoured (by the parasite that men become--a world ill from what they do). But as intelligent as we are, there's always a glimmer of hope,
since we've evolved from harsh prehistoric eras, and learning slowly, from our own climatic mistakes, we may survive just yet. Tread worldly and steady.

Now What should motivate us is the happiness and of betterment, viewing life and living it as precious as the days are few, moving forward with a mindful peace within, to go without. Alive again, then again
Learning to create not destroy. This new blue house is our house, for sho'! Now then what experience is best remembered than that of joy? In Love Together.

Here's hoping until Forever.
