The Human RACE

The Human RACE

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

There I go thinking again

"

 

 

Ignorance is not bliss

When the scene is

Technologically enhanced.

Digital spirits

Make for microchip souls

Hearts are solar powered

Not plugged in.

A mind should be a source

Of free will,

Not a prison for information.

 

Why be a stone

When a river is a lifeline

To Mother Nature?

 

If blood is thicker than water

How can so many

Have ice in their veins?

 

Is THE HUMAN RACE

Taken to literally?

This poem makes us stop and think about the world around us, and I would rather be a river than a stone any day plus with time a river with cut through the rock! I don't know why so many people ice in their veins but I truly hope I never become one of those unhappy souls.

We are chasing advancement so...that we have actually stopped advancing, evolving. Maybe technologically growing yes, but increasingly stunted as a race of thinking feeling people. High on intellectual quotient-low on emotional.

So what you ask is a valid question -
"Is THE HUMAN RACE
Taken to literally?" ........... I agree.

You are thinking rightly and my compliments on an intelligent write that made me stop in my tracks and think too. :)

I doubt it, think its heading on one set path and won't change without things coming to a head.
so easy to become caught up in technology and escapism and avoid
the flow of natural things or the blood of in your face relationships.
Everyone moving too quickly toward what can be controlled with the
fingertips instead of the heart. excellent writing.

Words to ponder here...I like the images of "digital spirits" and "microchip souls"...information can become a prison.

I like this a lot, but the last line in the last stanza should be, "Taken too literally". I swear, I'm not a grammar Nazi. I have a piece called, "Modernity Revisited" that is similar to this as far as subject matter.

glad you featured this again ~ 5 months ago i see i wrote something so different according to the mental space is was living in...

we are so quick to place definition to everything to balance our logic and longing....maintaining some sort of equilibrium of sanity according to our emotional wiring ~ subdued ~ excited and just looking for an element of air, water, fire and earth to slow us down in our own human...race to the unknown...
