Call to Creation


 

Listen!
All you beauty-makers,
Give up beauty for a moment.
Look at harshness, look at pain,
Look at life again.
Look at hungry babies crying,
Listen to rich men lying,
Look at China dying,
Hear the rumble in the East:
“In spite of all,
Life must not cease.”
In India with folded arms,
In China with the guns,
In Africa with the bitter smile –
See where the murmur runs:
“Life must not cease,
Because the fat and greedy ones
Proclaim their thieving peace.”
Their peace far worse than war and death –
For this is better than living breath:
Free! To be Free!Listen!
Futile beauty-makers –
Work for awhile with the pattern-breakers!
Come for a march with the new-world makers:
Let beauty be!


Langston Hughes

Listen!
Futile beauty-makers –
Work for awhile with the pattern-breakers!
Come march with the new-world makers:
Let beauty be!

What’s up family and new world makers, hope all is well and and that we all – Let Beauty Be!

Peace,

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
