I Don't Care Who or what you are or where you have been.We are all hurling through space on the same rock, isolated from any other signs of life for many light years in any direction. We all came from the same spark of life, we took form and advanced from there. We share the same finite resources, the same delicate ecosystem from which all life here depends. We are one in the same, with each other and with our nature. By harming one another, we harm ourselves. Our social brains are hard wired this way. We harm nature, we ensure our mutual destruction.
We have all been hurt, and had hopes that come crashing down. We all wake up each day and try to make things work the best we know how. Inside we all need love of some kind or we would wither and die like an ill-tended flower in a pot. So why do we see each other as so different? Why do we think we are alone in this? The space between us isn't so far that we have to stay isolated on our little islands, afraid of every crashing tide. Hiding within the confines of our shells because of what we've seen and felt out there before is no way to live.
It’s easy to decay, just stay where you are
watch the clear water thicken
the stream becomes a swamp
maybe something big happened
to make you feel this way
maybe nothing at all
but everyone that tries to stop the pain
finds out sooner or later, that all the good went with it too
