Growth is inevitable, or is it…

Wasteland

Some people grow

Like evergreen trees

A hybrid of eagle and wolf

Soaring

Carrying others to safety

Free from an oppressive past.

Technology, evolution, science,

An alliance

Of progression.

 

Others choose to remain trapped

In the past,

Bitter from the rigours

of climate change.

An apocalypse,

Fear of karma

Crippling guilt…

And decay.

 

The irony is that in seeking to protect themselves

from the ills of the past,

Those who stunt their own growth

Do to others, 

What they fear will be done to them. 

Jumping the gun. 

Proactive. 

Slaughter.

 

The circle.
