Blast from the Past: #287 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ And Life Still Goes On ~ a #poem

July 2019

We celebrate 30 years of the wall coming down in November but we are so occupied with Brexit, the orange man in the White House and climate crisis that we have no time to remember the hope this event produced. Such a shame the “Ewig Gestrigen” how they are called in German, are on the rise again. “Die Ewig Gestrigen” means “Those who live eternally in yesteryear”.

March 2015

So much upheaval all over the world and around us. When I was young, I hoped that the Wall coming down meant the end of conflicts that might be the death of us all.

25 years on there are more of those than ever. But when it comes down to it, life just goes on. It does not care about the squabbles humans think are so important. It does not care about profits or money. It just cares about creating more life. And as it is a life-force it will. It might just be without us.

And Life Still Goes On
 
the rats still scurry
the scorpio crawl
the lichen still grows
the ruins still fall
long
after humans
managed
to end it all!
