Hope for us

I wonder, will there come a time
When love and peace will be in rhyme
When we can rest from our obsession
This demon that we call progression

We can not push and drive ahead
Until our whole race will be dead
A burial, a burning earth
This is not what we all deserve

We have the means for us to rest
If we could give and pass the test
Abstain from our endless greed
Take two steps back, and from there lead

To come to the same place and trust
It would mean less for some of us
But would survival not be worth it?
Instead of our end as dust?

We can not go on as we do
But I know one thing that is true
Which is that goodness is our nature
We can learn in the less to trust

I think that there is hope for us

Author's Note
There are studies which show that if we could all agree on a certain standard of living our population size would be no problem at all. The problem is that this would mean having significantly less than the people in developed countries are accustomed to. Thus this would be hard to put into practice, but I think that in some form in the not so far future a massive redistribution of wealth will happen. It has to happen or we will face problems that will be hard if not impossible to overcome if our children are meant to have a future. I think it will be hard, but it will eventually happen. I just can not imagine that we will let it all burn.
