Did we miss the main cure?

For so long,

The main culprits were greedy governments,

Over supply of weapons, a few of mass destruction,

Desire to dominate, horde wealth, enslave mankind

To subjugate people of different color, race, gender, and belief systems.

The culprits were many;

We added problems of world dimensions:

Pollution, lack of potable water, dwindling of clean air…

Newer culprits were invented:

Lack of democracy, of steady emotions, and rational thinking…

 

For so long,

The only communication between citizens and authorities

Was kicking asses, smashing faces, pulling hairs

Hording political “misfits” to prisons…

 

For so long,

Young men filled with testosteron,

Clutching clubs, roamed earth

To taste fresh breeds of “cows”.

 

For so long,

We forgot to sniff a wild flower

Chase a butterfly

Hearken to the coughing of a bird at dawn

 

For so long,

We failed to look up at the moon and stars

Drank clear water of a stream cupping our palms

Heard an unrecorded bold laughter.

 

Is there a childhood to tending to?

Are there fresh lips to be kissed?

Are there serene pair of eyes to drown in?

Are there steady fingers to hold on?

Are there slender wastes Not wrapped with bombs?

Have we been missing the main cures?
