...song of the wind

Views: 79

A soul moves through space and time

Breathing, heart beating 

As it's inclined by fate or circumstance

To travel through life,

Among others of kind

Led as if by voices in the wind 

...without beginning or end

 

 

 

In the beginning of human time...

When written word and language were far from commonplace

Our fertile, intelligent, albeit underdeveloped sense of mind

...ruled our actions.

We fought over things that mattered

To survive...

When we

As human creations

Began to act in ways more defined

 

Before good and evil divided us

Even across language barriers and racial lines

We developed strengths

Seeking to overcome

Our weaknesses

...to show ourselves

As people who cared

About people

 

If you believe in such things

 

Before there were concepts 

Of studied forms of deceit

We reinforced bonds

Through our word

 

As we grew beyond

Familiar tribal ancestral roles

 

And later  ...societal rules

 

As institutions were first realized

In trial and error... Training camps

For citizenship rights 

 

By people who shared the wisdom gained through their lives

 

Leaving signs of their influence long after their day had passed

 

Its about making ties that help us to survive

 

Even to this day some still last

 

Even before there were graves

Or organized rituals,

We grew sideways

With knowledge of fire and horses

War machines, wheels and raising grain

 

Like observing the stars in the heavens

 

And knowing of the reasons

...for the seasons

 

Making places of higher learning

 

Havens of and for the ranking, wealthy or privledged

Unless you were one of the more fortunate people

 

Having family mentors who believed what they taught

 Even risked their lives

 

 Before the churches and schools took charge

Commonplace, as they are  ...in this day,

 

Do we respect the process of learning

By being a good example

 

...living in the most honorable way

 

Yet, we still practice human sacrifice in wars beyond end...

Wouldn't it be nice if we could all stop and listen

To the wisdom that has come and gone

  ...like the song of the wind
