The Beginning Is the End

The Prayer of All Goods Heart

Oh, my Lord, my Captain,
Love us more, love us strongly,
Because without your charity
We are stupid.
Lord shake us so hard
That our eyeballs will fly
To the nearest rose garden
And stay there seeing
The beauty of your work
And we forget to think
The world of ourselves.
That stance makes us
The nature rapists
we are now.
Yes, yes, I know
It should be our duty
To make things right
But you see how we are
Just blaming you
For our crimes.
Of course, you can’t turn
The planet go anticlockwise
But just do it to us
And I will walk without shoes
For the rest of my life
As I hate to see your
Good intension of creation
To be foiled.

Endless Amount of Light by Yelling Rosa 2016 001

Endless Amount of Light

The fiery hearse of death running in the dark
Towards me and rip me off this world.
The light is infinite at the moment
It is said to fast vanish away.
It’s funny to believe others
Without hearing
Yourself.

  6. I realize this is only a poetic hyperbole, but unfortunately, your request to deploy the world counterclockwise is not feasible. It seems to me that humanity violates the right move in a clockwise direction and run away from the path charted by God.

      I am saying exactly the same thing. First I state: “Of course you can’t turn/The planet go anticlockwise” but because it is possible for human beings to change the course of life, I am asking “But just do it to us”. When a man goes anticlockwise she is taking back in time and history. It is what I believe the world needs now. When we were next to nature we also lived automatically in balance with the world and its Creator. All this technique nonsense has gone to our heads and we don’t take into consideration anything else than our own needs. If something goes wrong, we can fix it with new inventions, we defend ourselves.
      All the best to you😉

    It’s a good thing that ends are beginnings, too, eh?

    I really like these lines:

    Lord shake us so hard
    That our eyeballs will fly
    To the nearest rose garden
    And stay there seeing
    The beauty of your work

      Thank you for commenting,
      I agree with you that everything works in two ways and that’s why we have hope even though we have started to behave very destructive. If we don’t realize soon the idea of existence, it will leave us for good. Life is a forever lasting extension of generations, not something one or two human generations speculate. We don’t see this dimension in a right proportion. The last 10.000 years is nothing to decide what are the innumerable years before. Our restless migration started about 10.000 years ago when the mankind started the agriculture. Unfortunately this was also the beginning of the jobbery as there was food to stock and trade which has come to this globalism where everything is valued by the profit without taking care of environment, real democracy and well-being of the whole mankind.

      It is often said that the human economy can’t go backwards. It is an easy argument that confuses us, but what it means “to go backwards”. Isn’t it going backwards if we are running out natural resources and don’t know what love is anymore. All living species depend on relatives. We have broken this connection and missing it back desperately. Every ideology and faith is a shadow of that connection and because we know it in our deepest inner, we are always ready to defend our own way of being. We want to be inside of something but this is not the way to do it. Personally, I don’t see any other choice than respecting the moment where the local culture ruled the world. The global system is too big for us to handle.

      Well, I got carried away. I hope that I didn’t make you feel uncomfortable. It wasn’t my intention. I am only so worried about what’s going on this world and I am not the only one as John Lennon said once. Of course, there are many kind of opinions about the global warming but running out resources and food are behind the corner. Do we just wait the chaos or do we do something for our and other living creatures’ sake? Yes, as you said we can go both ways and I am speaking because I believe there’s something we can do in a way our Creator expects.

      All the best to you and every other living creature on earth

    What a tremendous amount of emotion both of these poems bring “But you see how we are, Just blaming you, For our crimes.” speaks to everyone from everywhere… And what can save us from ourselves in the light that you bring with these words.

      You are right: we are in the same boat no matter how much we try to deny it.
      All the best to you and good shots from the head of the boat🙂
