Tribe

It is time for some of us now. We have felt the pull from deep within, a voice, a call, a rumbling of despair and discontent. It is time for some of us now.
We have felt the pain of the earth as it has been chopped, scraped and cleared. We have seen the destruction of beautiful natural wild spaces.
It is time for some of us now. We have heard the screams of wild beings as their homes and habitats are being destroyed. Now we hear their distress in our dreams, from our deepest human selves.
It is time for some of us now. We have replaced our elders with shopping carts and automobiles. We have found no sustenance in these ways.
It is time for some of us now. We see it is up to us. We see we are the ones that must grow ourselves up.
It is time for some of us now. We know we have sucked the life out of our adolescence and it is now vacant, hollow. We see that our narcissism hollowed out a void in the world and we are now in it.
It is time for some of us now. It is time to grow ourselves. It is time to call on our “old” selves, our indigenous selves, to show the way, the “old”  and wild human way.
It is time for some of us now. We feel the pull of our mother every moment, drawing us to her. We know now she is our teacher, sustainer and elder.
It is time for some of us now. We know it is our new path and can see how it is to be travelled. Come join the clan, the tribe of those that know it is in a place called “Here” and a time called “Now”!
