An Earthly Demise Revisited

Dirt in my eyes
Dust in my mouth
Mud in my veins
Embodiment of Earth
I’m all that remains
Pained by the ignorance of a species gone wrong
I grow weaker as they’re growing strong

Valued, claimed and depleted
So sick and fevered, my surface so heated
Greeted by death from afar
If you can’t see it coming, you’re not looking very hard
Tars, oils and minerals refined
Countless syringes stealing what’s inside

Dirt in my eyes
Dust in my mouth
Mud in my veins
Embodiment of Earth
I’m all that remains
Slain by the ignorance of a species gone wrong
I grow weaker as they’re growing strong

Broken down as they build it up
The natural balance, untenable
Corrupt
Eruptions of power are my retaliation
Mutual destruction
My mutilation
Utilize my body, try to get ahead
I’ll see your end long before I’m dead

Burning the skies, clearing them out
I’ll erase it all with famine, sickness and drought
Don’t doubt I’ll cut them loose
I am the Earth
I don’t need you

Future Flora

Static body, roots ever expanding

Underestimated reach

Tapped into a network spanning land, air and sea

Boundaries unfamiliar

Borders even less

I’m almost everywhere

I’m standing in one place

Demolish

Writer’s block is a farce

There’s really no such thing

Even a lack of motivation is inspiring

String together shells of colored glass

Empty lines, yet heavy is the impact

Shattering, cutting to the core

Plain thoughts

Hollow words I transform

New Again

Where do I belong?

I can’t really say.

The world is a strange place, full of uncertainty.
I never tire of seeking answers.

Looking for passion that comes with understanding.

And though I’ve known a great many things, I feel drawn from familiarity.

To wander out the door.

I’m at home in a strange land.
