There are no safe havens

12 Nov

There are no safeports in the natural world

we have to create them

all that exists is a wildness

a need to survive

and an uncontrollable urge

a unquenchable desire

without shape or purpose

subject to the whims of the wind

and the surf

There are no safe havens

places without predators

places without death

we have to create them

we have to rewrite the world

create a new set of rules

be more than we are

we have to set our sites high

and create the impossible

a world in which nature becomes nurture

and desire becomes creativity

then we are animals no longer

we have become artists

as we guide the world into maturity

and create safe havens
