Sleeping Giants

by Fredy RoMa0u Sanchez   Mar 29, 2020

The shivers of a naked land stir the morning awake
It yawns through the forest, hills and hidden lake
And through the forest a once lost tale is brought up...
Of beings who once drank the mountain's dew in a cup
As they once stood on the mountain top
And witnessed all.
They trapped the impetuous winds to make psalms
And reigned in the seas without qualms.
Lulled every wild beast in all the realms
From the biggest mammal to the tiniest diatoms.
They grew too prosperous, however.
Success is such a treacherous endeavor.
They rested on their laurels and became complacent,
They fought useless quarrels and were too impatient.
The greed of some dwarfed Gaia herself.
They stole, cheated and turned into liars as well,
Family and friends became pawns In a crude game of chess...
The few responsible claimed the fault laid somewhere else.
And so it went.
While our resources were slowly spent.
Civilizations rose and fell.
Often without learning the moral of their own tale.
Will it go on?
Will it always be the same old song?
No! No more.
It stops right here and now!
I proclaim a sleeping giant has awaken at last
To teach us all not to make the same mistakes of the past.
He's you, you, you, you and her!
Hes everyone who is willing to care.
Willing to think and work from within
To show our kids is righteous to dream
Of a better future
And mother Earth's wound help suture.
