Diversity

multiworlds
A world where many worlds fit.
what a wonderful concept.
A realisation that there is
no one right way.

Over the eons we have crafted
a thousand mythologies.
All born of human imagination
and the nature of the local land.
Society deeply intertwined with country.
So humanity flourished
across this gloriously diverse Earth.

Now capitalism claims superiority.
Devised by minds that have forgotten
their place within the greater universe.
It is seen as the only way.
Imposed across the globe.
In its wake the rainbow of life
reduced to the dull grey of uniformity.

A world where many worlds fit.
what a wonderful concept.

What would it be like
if we allowed space for others
to live as they wish?
What if we were the ones
to reign in our consumptive ways?

Turning away from the pursuit of
personal gain and superficial appearances
Seeking instead
a simpler, kinder way.
Acknowledging the right of all life to exist.
A kaleidoscope of colours
bursting forth again.

A world where many worlds fit.


This was inspired by an article written on the Zapatistas and their manifesto of “A World Where Many Worlds Fit”.
