Maybe

Maybe the increasing level of storms and wildfires and earthquakes are not the fault of human behavior. Maybe things will settle down in the future even if we don’t change our behavior. Maybe years from now the planet will still support human life. Or, maybe we should wake up and do something about the situation.

One thought on “Maybe”

  1. Maybe the bullets will stop flying , for once
    Maybe we will all breathe lead-shot free air
    Maybe homes will be welcoming places, free
    Maybe we will garner enough courage to speak
    against murders of dissenting journalists
    Maybe we will finally welcome people who talk
    in different tongues , to our home and hearth
    Maybe we will empathise with harrowing ordeals
    of others , so we may see humanity reflected
    in salty ,tears
    Maybe one day we will see a child as a human
    and not a carrier of religion and language
    Like a contagion , burden of birth
    Polluting, labelling , segregating
    Maybe one day they will reach out to the sky
    and claim a fistful of stars
    twinkling
    in the same universal language
    for thousands of years
