The poet in this short poem, calls our attention to how we are very much like the earth. This is a poem about all of us and our dear earth.
If Earth evolves by dying, I am
a desert, like the Sahara, stretching,
scorching savannahs and rainforests,
encroaching stranger lands, bound
for the Atlantic.
And I shall empty myself
into the ocean.
Who’d rather dissolve in ancient water than feed
the vacuum of their composition?
The former is of fate;
the latter makes me think
of creatures drinking water.
Yet they are one and the same.
The trick to being immortal is
to be like the sky – weep!
Earth swallows itself – rain!
We are very much
like the oceans, we are
dust, we hold water.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
