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
