The Revolution of Revolutions

The Revolution of Revolutions

“Revolutions go not backward.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Revolution of Revolutions

The small, meandering mind
dreams in revolutions.

The big, brilliant brain
fears revolutions.

The sun guides us all
deciding for us what has already been decided.

As it rises and falls
we rise and we fall.

A pattern that has been written
by all revolutions,
year after year,
generation after generation.

As we fly by the sun
we fly through history.

Each revolution faster than the last.

History available at our fingertips
is forgotten before it is remembered.

A pattern that has been written
by all revolutions,
year after year,
generation after generation.

Our hope
is that the small, meandering minds
keep dreaming about revolutions
while our fear of revolutions subsides
and we rewrite the pattern –

A pattern that has been written
by all revolutions,
year after year,

generation after generation.
