Humans are an infant species
when compared to the
hundred of millions of years
some species have been
around Mother Earth.
Look at all that we have learned
in the two-hundred thousand years
modern humans have been on the planet.
Likewise, we’ve only had civilizations
for around eighty-five hundred years.
How much more do you imagine
we might learn after we’ve been around
six or eight million years like the whales?
Mother Earth, who, in all probability, is alive
has been around for about
four and a half billion years.
How much do you imagine she’s
happened to learn?
The Universe, in all likelihood, also alive
has been around for at least
thirteen and a half billion years.
Imagine what wonders
she might have learned
in all that time—
Before you despair
the state of Mankind
remember we’ve only begun
our long travels in the halls of time.
Personally, I think we are
destined for great things
once we’ve grown up a bit.
