Mother Gaia Know Best






I Have not written much about the 8.46 seconds and the killing of George. Too traumatic.

I have not said much about the marches and the riddance of old ironic statues that keeps dragging us back to a past, almost like trying to use memories to keep us in our place.

I have not mentioned the trillions hidden, no stolen by quantum easing out of the collective purse by the rich for the rich, whilst we are distracted and mentally locked away by the dreaded virus.

I hope I am putting a tiny bit of that right by the poem below and my new book

"20 Things I Wish I Knew At 20"

Which explores a a number of these issues. We all have to play our part in the battle for the collective soul of us humans.

The book will be available on Amazon on 4th July, see link below.

If Tomorrow Comes

If Tomorrow Comes
And finds me in its path
I pray it meets me satiated
And not still full of wrath
I hope I will not be unsatisfied
Displeased with what I have done
With all the time I was given
To move the battle on.

If Tomorrow Comes
And we are still learning forgiveness and peace
Whilst some people’s abandoned humanity
Keeps the world ill at ease
I hope I will not be unsatisfied
Displeased with what I have done
With all the time I was given
To move the battle on.

If Tomorrow Comes
And Gaia is still shedding her tears
For the landscape that is dying from greed
Whilst the Oligarchs laughs at her fears
I hope I will not be unsatisfied
Displeased with what I have done
With all the time I was given
To move the battle on.

And when tomorrow comes
And the imagined realities, fall from our eyes
And we see just what we have done
It will be a positive surprise.
I hope I will not be unsatisfied
Displeased with what I have done
With all the time I was given
To move the battle on.
