The Fist And The Ovum
The fist and the ovum went for a walk
The ovum said “really, I just want to talk”
But the fist had ideas of power and might
Determined to incite the ovum to fight
The transparent fist made Ovum sigh
For she was the maker of life, not the lie
But it didn’t deter the focus of fist
Who called it a war when Ovum tried to resist
The walk ended badly and both limped away
The fist with his conscience and the ovum betrayed
For as long as gender has been on this earth
The takers of life hate those who give birth
that is really the road of resolution and rebirth, lets not forget or disregard the lessons of the past for the apparently terminal condition of hate, fear and misunderstanding in this world. The implication for our future of continuing on this path is dire. We are now collectively standing on a precipice, poised to leap over the edge to our final destruction, or to step back and preserve the human race. I’ve posted the video below with the desire you will hear the words of a special girl displaying the wisdom and vision rare in one so young amid such suffering, spoken by a woman who also endured during that terrible time of hate, bigotry and genocide. Think about not only the past year, but the past one hundred and see how far socially we have NOT come and know solidly within your heart and soul that this is still happening to the innocent. There is a power shift taking place on this planet and many decisions will need to be made by individuals, us. We have a new decade in which to not only overcome the hate that erodes humanity’s promise, but to also remove and destroy the root of despair which comes along with the vitriol, before it plunges ever deeper into our psyches, stealing our hope, love and diplomatic ability to compromise. We worry more it would seem, about whales, seals and polar bears than we do about abused children in our own hometown or little babies left without parents or even their own limbs due to the insanity of the oil war. Perhaps it is easier to care about a cute and cuddly looking animal than it is a lice infested and suffering baby with no food, parents or love. Perhaps in 2010, each of us will find a way to use our art to reach into that dark place and shine a light. Thanks for reading this and watching the video. Much love and good vibes for all you wonderful scribes, as always.
and I’m going to post something today, tomorrow and of course Wednesday about it. Today you get one of the best songs I’ve ever heard about war, because it’s the truth for veterans and their families. Get out the tissue, it’s a hurter.
