have I been born into,
have you been born into,
have we been born into?
the slave owner,
It’s all a game of competition
or at least it all seems like a game of competition…
The Earth is not a game.
The Earth is life;
and we are part of the Earth.
We have each been handed an inheritance
that we had no control over. You’re right.
We’ve all been infants, breast fed, bottle fed,
learned to read if we were lucky.
But how much did we really learn
if I am unable to read the society around me–
if society is unable to read itself?
Who created this inheritance, thought it was a good idea?
What is an inheritance anyway?
If leaves learned to read, write, speak
as we have…
perhaps we would have an answer.
