so you say that to consume less

we should be less worldly 

humbler

somehow closer to god

much closer to each other

but why are some people so selfish, you ask

unable to see how 

what they need to feel alive

depends on the exploitation of others

taking for one

what could belong to many 

 

is this such a mystery

or is there a belief 

beneath

 

you once said that capitalism is digging stuff out of the ground

moving it around

and putting it back again 

 
does everyone know that 

half of global emissions come

from resource extraction

for the goods

that are the distraction 

from that

inferiority  

complex

those voices that tell us we are 

inadequate in the eyes of that new god the

celebrity

social
 

we ran from our old gods 

as we were Inadequate in their eyes too

but we are more than this

thousand year schism 

in our soul and 

in the soul

of the 

world

 

It is enough that

We are enough 

 

So

Ditch the guilt 

That shame of

Apparent imperfection

And

 

Start accounting 

For the future

For the others

 

Taking

The bravery to say

I will do what I do

Do what I love

 

However small

Mundane even

But I will do it differently 

Now
