Enough

Once upon a time, we knew there was enough There was! There was plenty.

 

But some pied piper, internal or external,

I don’t know

Said

“There isn’t enough

Live in fear; there isn’t enough!”

 

& so the fear & the fracturing began

Controlling the Earth

Controlling each other

 

10,000 years of fear-based culture

5,000 of patriarchy

 

Now? Now there is too much of so many things

  • Greed/hogging/hoarding
  • Inequity
  • Exclusion
  • Population
  • Religion / religious intolerance
  • War
  • Violence
  • Guns

(I could go on.)

 

We have certainly long since “lost control”

(Control: the great illusion.)

 

Still.
