Spoken Word

Bravery of the much maligned

There is no throwaway
Only moved to another place 
Things caught, bought, made

The mess we make
That floats and sails to the lands beyond 
That flies with the wind and is never gone

Specks, dots, flecks
Not leaving us alone
Following in our bodies now their new home

Enlightened but helpless
What to do
Changing costs, losses unprepared to lose

Technology our saviour
So we can stay the same
Deluded into thinking we can be unchanged

Values alter
Emphasis on something else
What is this new world we must make for ourselves

Learning from before
But using what’s known now 
Growing into adulthood somehow

Fortune is a state or perspective
Altered eyes accept the previously rejected
Unconvinced cynics deeply dejected

Hope and dreams to be realised 
Stepping forwards
Bravery of the much maligned

Immune and ready to be criticised 
Hands dirty, brow sweating 
Unmoved at being pushed aside

Finding purpose an attractive prospect 
In achieving Humanity’s goal 
Happiness as a side effect
