grassroots

Upon uncharted territory we go:
But when was the future ever really known?
Misled under false security
Charts and measurements and linear thinking
Cultivated under an unsustainable code,
a system that is failing
a gradual, slow, descent / dissent
let it go, let it return, let it die

it was always so precarious
never built to last, eating itself
(recall: our naming the loophole
this is the ‘apocalypse’ they want:
destruction, devastation
when apocalypse means
uncovering; a revelation)

look around:
as one tips over, the other sprouts:
and what are you imagining?
what are you reaching for, nurturing:
as we lean into this mystery?

often, change is never what it seems
or what we think it is, how we were
formed to consider it consciously
(you feel it coming and paint a picture
from personal bias: the sort of fallacy
you were raised to choke on)

We are Stronger than We were Made to Believe.
Shape our Fragility into a Fortress.
Wear our Sensitivity like Armor.

Get our grassroots planted. 

Day by Day
and ready
for any
thing.
