we were sitting on the porch in silence and she just started saying this

"do you understand that we hurt everything we touch?
we're destructive and careless and awful.
we think of the earth, plants and other animals as a threat and as disposable resources 
instead of our home, medicines, and friends.

plants can heal every natural ailment and if we took care of our
bodies like we were supposed to, humans would probably
be immune to most illnesses by now.
but instead, we found unnatural ways around them.
we've made ourselves progressively sicker.

we've made the earth progressively sicker.
the earth is destroyed and it's too late.

wars and manufacturing and non-biodegradable waste were all made by man

people go to these wonderful beautiful vacation places to see pretty views and relax
but what they fail to realise is that if we weren't here, the whole world would be that way.

the world would be beautiful without us
but we've ruined it
and it's too late now
no amount of recycling your newspaper and coke cans will fix this now"

i just thought i'd share because i think she's right
i mean we don't have to be like cave people with no technology
but it's gone too far, ya know? i mean, whats next?
is all that futuristic flying car, chrome building crap really what everyone wants?
not me. why can't people just appreciate things that they have

human intelligence a curse
we don't think of ourselves as a part of the ecosystem anymore
we think we're above nature and every other living being
why? just because we can talk and build stuff?

we should have been the species to preserve the earth
too late now

Wow... So true. One of these days I'm going to come up with some way to fix the ozone layer, whether people like it or not!

In a weird way we're kind of at war with nature. Thing is no matter what we build even if its strong and large nature always grows over and consumes it, breaking it down etc. So really, we can't compete on the grand scheme. Yes we are quicker with building and movement but nature appears to be immortal where as we can become extinct quite easily.
Just my two cents

yeah pretty much
which is why i focus so much on animal welfare and such. bc humans are so cruel and irresponsible when it comes to our planets species that they die out, or with like tigers, theres more pets than there are wild ones. [pets, not ones in sanctuaries/zoos]

its so disgusting and i absolutely hate the human race

Interestingly, we aren't actually the only species that have wars!  Chimps and Ants are two I can think of off the top of my head

i think about this a lot. sometimes I wish humans had never existed, I want to see what the planet would look like without us and all of the damage that we've caused. I also think it's sad when you learn about history because things seemed peaceful, and then it slowly transitioned into wars and destruction and it's just really sad. I wish humans could be more caring, we can still undo all this damage but I don't think anyone cares enough to actually make a difference. though I doubt we could anyways because so many people are so greedy and I doubt many people would want to give all of this up.
your mother is very wise, by the way.

I think of this far too often.
Your mother is very wise.
And I agree 100% with what is said in here.
