Levels of ConsciousnessA Poem by Li Li
Trying to create something new.... this will be the first chapter of many as the story unfolds.
There was once a time when innocence roamed the Earth.
The birth of Mother Nature was well observed;
all things remained untouched and preserved.
Even dust bowed in her presence.
Her windfall words pollinated the planet.
Her thunderous chimes, through cloudy deliverance,
gave hope to a rock once lost in nothingness.
As time evolved things seemed to change…
Roots of immunity became infected and the cries went unheard.
Life migrated from the skies proclaiming themselves as Gods.
This discovered land served as the new providence.
Unknowingly, the Earth’s breath shortened with each pull of soil.
Islands emerged from the depths of the sea.
Rivers of fire flowed carelessly.
Soon the colors, once vibrant, began to fade.
From afar, Lucifer smiled in recognition of his achievements.
The laws of love began to overturn.
The dawn of technology now defiled all levels of consciousness.
