YOU’RE BETTER THAN THAT – By ElizaBeth Coira

You're Better Than That_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

What drives people to hurt our home–planet
So too we hurt ourselves

What drives people to harm another
Too many guts filled with poisoned cultures

What drives people to go astray
Or simply continue to look the other way

What drives anyone to fill up on hate
Fear, aggression
Blind, rabid competition

We choose to see
We choose to believe
We choose to feed on ideas

But a Loveless diet
Yields only the waste
What about the promise
                                                    purpose
Of our human existence

It need not be
A race to the bottom
End my friends

You’re better than that
