Mission: Escape

Whenever humankind faces existential problems

They have two possible opposing reactions:

Escape the present, and start somewhere else;

Or alter your priorities to advance survival of humanity.

Historically, when Europe wanted to get rid of criminals,

They placed them on a boat to the then ‘savagery’

Of North America, where indigenous people

Roamed freely, thriving without the need

That are imposed by the ‘guests’ who shot

And killed indiscriminately to take over the lands.

From this grew capitalist society that takes

Advantage of its population to grow in powers.

Today, there are no undiscovered territories or unexploited ones.

So … What recourse does humanity have for its survivals?

All that’s left is space, Mars, our closest Neighbor

Is millions of miles away with an uninhabitable atmosphere.

Technology is advancing at such an exponential rate

That a mission to Mars is a proven possibility.

Man’s an ostrich!!!!

He hides from his problems rather than face them!

Instead of spending billions on fixing earth,

He spends hundreds of billions on space travels.

How can we progress if we can’t solve our obstacles?

Civilizations will die down because of this,

And people’s acceptance of change is in paralysis.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
