We silly humans making our way in the world..
We carve paths through the wilderness then pave them with stones
and wonder why the animals fear us.

We build our house in places where beauty reigns.
Then everyone else does so we build fences to keep them out.
And they build fences to keep us out.
And it isn't so beautiful anymore.

We fling ourselves from the skin of the world in tiny metal boxes.
And we forget to marvel at the fact that man wasn't meant to fly.

We can make something out of nothing,
and nothing out of something.
We build to touch the sky, we dig to reach the earth.

We walk to fast.
We forget that the fish swim.
We forget to watch the Dragonflys dance.
We make too much noise.
