Everything Needs to Change

Our Mother is telling us
     everything needs to change;
  she is dying at the hands 
     of our neglectful actions.
Our communities are telling us
     everything needs to change;
  they are fracturing because 
     of our disunity.
Our neighbors are telling us
     everything needs to change;
  they are suffering from the lack 
     of human connection.
The Divine is telling us
     everything needs to change;
  God is weeping at the sound 
     of our hostility.
