Hour 19; Prompt 19: The Human Organism

There is beauty in nature
And all the creatures in it

They way they live
Against the odds

How so unlike their brethren in nature
Even amongst the apes
There is more solidarity
More community
Than in one nation

Some of us, it seems, has forgotten
What it is to struggle as a species
Against the very real fate of extinction
Too busy wiping itself out, I suppose

I have long believed it is in mans nature to destroy itself
No other species in the world
Has fought so hard against itself
For control of something that can never truly be controlled
Harnessed, perhaps, but even the tamest can go wild

e Pluribus
Of many

One day, we will remember
And exist as nature has intended
A single species, with all of it’s colorful variations
Striving together
