If and when.
If you can reach beyond your sight.
To see whats beyond your work, your home, and country.
If you can reach beyond your hearing.
To hear whats beyond your life, your chatters and insecurities.
If you can reach beyond your sense of touch.
To feel whats beyond your surroundings, your hugs and loved ones.
If you can reach beyond your sense of smell,
To smell whats beyond your cologne, your teas and your coffees.
If you can reach beyond your sense of taste.
To savor whats beyond your palette of luxury food, your buffets and your snacks.
When you are ready, shall we move towards that of life and beyond.
When you are ready, shall we appreciate Gaia more and use lesser?
When you are ready, shall we walk barefooted on the sand?
When you are ready, shall we prepare our own food and let there be lesser waste?
When you are ready, shall we lepak below the stars and listen to the music of the waves hitting the cliffs?
When will we be ready if the moment is not now?
When will we be aware and acknowledge how bad it can come about and hit the younger ones?
When will we be prepared to overcome what will engulf us soon?
When will we stop and reflect, that money cant buy anymore hope?
When will we ever come to our senses?

They say time and tide wait for no man.
They say society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
They say only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.
They say when the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you, it is you who belongs to this land.
One shall not entice the next generation with a brighter future when one have yet to sustain its current environment.
One shall not speak what the future can hold until one had found solutions to make the land a better place.
One shall not pass on the screwed up philosophy of how money can get one happiness but oversee the breaking down of the biodiversity.
Day in day out, night in night out, its been a toll and a lot of heart pain, from her(Mother Earth), wailing and yelling how much humans are just too cant be bothered. Too ignorant to bend their moral for materials.
Look beyond that of the horizon, look beyond that of your community, look further, and see not with your eyes, but with your heart.
How and why did we make the newer generations pay for our sins?
How and why do they have to pay for a bleak future full of pollution?
Aint they no choice but to be brought here.
Aint they no choice but to continue our selfish living ways?
Just STOP. N yet, im STUCK.
Like all, like one.
Trees that spoke, of old tales of the past.
Tales of the land.
Tears of the great mother.
Heartbeat of her.
Gaia, some called her.
Visions of the future.
Remnants of the past.
Actions for the present.
Consequences of past actions.
Its time we stop pointing fingers at each other.
Its time we stop and think, but start taking action.
The environment is more than just our own, the means is hurting the ends too much.
How much longer are we willing to hurt Mother Gaia?
How much more do we need to sacrifice before the leaders take their word to protect her?
How much more needs to be translated to the masses that we are not the forms of society, but a citizen of earth herself?
Think beyond, stop thinking for ourselves.
Think for the environment, the trees, the nature, the very lives before us that are not humans doesn’t mean that we are not responsible for them.
Karma will hit and it will hit us hard.
How much had they gave us? And yet how much did we gave them back?
Only when the seas are dead and black,
Only when the bees stop buzzing and trees are bare,
Only when the skies are red,
Only when there is no air?
We are in it too late?
And we are in it no matter what.
Just bloody wake up your freaking idea and look beyond the fucking materialistic life and see that we had f***ed it up.
The problems and issues are too much, and it takes every single humans to do it right back for Mother Gaia.
F***ing humans which also includes myself. Need to wake the f*** up.
Clear the mess.
And STOP pointing fingers at each other, take up that duty and responsibility.
Say no to commercializing,
Say no to materialistic lifestyle,
Say yes to nurturing of nature,
Say yes to minimalistic living.
