AFoggyone's Self
The Self and Man

Fighting and conflicts, longed for by our Self,
are destroying the future of Man.
The brilliant flash of hope, our inner wealth,
is becoming distant, an unseen land
of love and peace and joy and gentle hand.
We are crashing now, when we could go far,
we are losing our drive, making demands
that are keeping us from winning the stars.
The struggles of our planet are what bars
us from the heavens as our ancient dreams
barred us from sedentary lives; the car
the train, the shuttle, all have bridged the streams
that kept us from reaching brand new heights.
Now we must conquer our urge to fight.
