Future Of Humankind


fg

December 28, 2016, United States Secretary of State, John Kerry’s seventy-minute-plus speech addressing the Israeli and the Palestinian State is a futile, last-minute attempt to bring resolve, a peace accord, to a seemingly unresolvable, decades-long conflict. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is quick to admonish Mr. Kerry’s remarks by advocating in the eight years of President Obama’s administration, it has failed to recognize the true plight of the Israeli Peoples. The Prime Minister then went further to seal the future for continued conflict in the region by putting his faith in the incoming President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration to provide the needed political, military and financial support for Israel to achieve its true and ultimate goal: a One-State solution.

Though the public position of the Netanyahu government is to move toward a Two-State solution the illegal expansion of settlements amongst other illegal Israeli maneuvers, remarked by Kerry, is evidence that this is not so. These obvious contradictions in policy supported by members of the Israel Knnest fly in the face of the United Nations Security Council and the Arab League of Nations which advocate for a Two-State solution in recognition of the Palestinian State and the Peoples of Palestine.

The tone of the incoming Trump administration comprised of hardball, militaristic, win at any cost attitudes; pledging undying support for Israel to achieve its unofficial goals to a One-State solution absolutely guarantees an escalation in acts of terror coming from apartheid occupied Gaza and West Bank and supporting factions in Jordan and Lebanon. To further exacerbate tensions in the already conflict-mired Middle-East region and of a broader concern for Israel; the growing influence of Iran. Which, under normal circumstances, would not have the backing support of the Arab League of Nations and potentially, some members of the United Nations Security Council such as Russia and China.

It does not take the intellect and talents of a master chess player to see the pieces to the game that is unfolding and that can only declare one party the winner. Unfortunately, the tools in the hands of those who seem bent on winning, at any cost, are sufficiently dire and decisive enough to bring humanity, if not its ultimate demise, most definitely its undoing for millennia.

The power of prayer seems beyond the wisdom of those to whom humanity has given the power to chart its course and leaves for history, the future of humankind, to truly know its ultimate fate.

Proclivity


 

proclivity

Locked away in the mind’s darkness cave,
Left to manifest thoughts outwardly brave
Though, when spoken, the conflicted do rave;
Challenging wisdom’s retreat, to save.

History’s pattern unwittingly resolves
Into depths of forgetfulness to dissolve;
Leaving pain and suffering itself to solve;
To once again, like a clock wound, revolve.

Human nature, a questionable ally or foe,
An intuitiveness’ retarded flow,
A once thought `truth’, to bind and know
Yet, it’s truth’s blindness that does grow.

Giving reason to this proclivity to discern;
Having spent millennia endeavoring to learn
Yet, humankind, seemingly, more resolute to spurn
And, for it; civilization, as in past, does ultimately burn.

Rememberance 2016


The following poem I wrote back in 2012 to acknowledge on this day November 11th, the fallen; those who gave of themselves in service to the freedoms we enjoy to this day, however, as much as it is said in tribute, it is meant to reflect the brutal waste of lives given to the folly of those to whom we choose to lead us; those often, whom avoid the true hardships they wittingly impose on the Peoples of their Nation.

Remembrance?

We hail courageous heroes of war; but for whom is the true enemy at bastion door; for each nation’s fallen soldier is a heart made sore; and to whom do the real gains amass, while the bereaved tally the deathly score?

___________________________________

To be of common purpose in mind; is not to be to true reasons blind; for the failings within humankind; for the atrocities inflicted upon its own kind; appeased by pageant and ceremony to remind; but in truth’s end, to repetition, it is endlessly inclined.

___________________________________

Spilling mental guts upon the literary floor; thousands pass but simply ignore, for their lack of interest to what may touch their shore; yet find the time to whisper ridicule and messenger to deplore; yielding incessant ignorance to reason, to endure.

True Captains


spaceearth

A thunderous boom echoed from a cloudless sky
Summoning the shrill of an unknown baby’s cry
Sending a shiver of fear hard to deny
With wonderment of question: `Why?’

Soon the streets filled with curious minds
Looking upward and outward for telling signs
But none were visible or made blind
Leaving an answer to the question hard to find.

Those of pious belief fell in prayer to their knees,
Atheists and the agnostic took to cowering under trees
Finding no reason to solution, source of fear to relieve;
Taking this sign as an ominous warning, one to be believed.

Next, the sunlight of day became hauntingly dark,
The blackness of night full, consuming, stark;
Artificial light failed to counter its sudden, complete embark,
Confirming to all, this strangeness is not to be deemed a lark.

Ancient prophecy has long spoken of such a coming event
Taken by most to be of an old zealot’s religious invent;
Poised as reason for all sinners toward a godly entity, to repent,
To gain a promise of such calamity, to wishfully prevent.

Intellectual voices of science took strides to explain
The Earth is passing through its Galaxy’s cosmic plane;
A natural, phenomenal cycle that occurs time and again
Ensuring reason toward humanity’s ails is not the source to blame.

Three days, three nights the darkness full did cause
Thousands to wait in fear, confused by whose `laws’
To believe to be this earthly calamity’s true cause
But, what is certain; Humanity is given good reason to pause.

On the fourth day sunlight once again made for a blue sky,
The cry of relief echoing loud, fervently far and wide;
From this, it became evidently clear and impossible to deny,
Earth, a cosmic vessel, is given for all humanity, on which to fly.

No longer encumbered by divisive, omnipresent rules of religious fear,
Humankind realizes they are the true Captains to this earthly ship to steer
Through the voidness of cosmic space knowing the path to be made clear
Is through intellect of mind and, love for each other, to hold most dear.

Human Paradox


Q: Is the divisive nature of humankind inherent in the need, as an individual, to be self-identified?

Q: Is the formation of human groups derived from the ability and/or want to locate with others of humankind perceived to retain the same self-identifiable values/qualities?

Q: Is the inherent need to be self-identifiable, as an individual or group comprised of those perceived to retain the same identifiable values/qualities, a precursor to conflict instigated by the competition of one individual/group’s values/qualities versus those of another individual/group’s?

Q: If the answers to these questions are `YES’; would it not be logical to ask: 

                                       Is conflict an inherent component of humankind?

Paradox:

Progress and advancement of the human condition: the desire to outdo and/or surpass the proven values/qualities of they/that, who/which presently dominate, is derived from the influence of competition.

Competition is readily identified as a root cause  of conflict from individual, hand to hand battles to nation versus nation in combat of war.

The Paradox: Competition advances humankind at the cost of ceaseless conflict

Conclusion:

To eradicate conflict is to eradicate competition derived by eliminating the need/want to be self-identifiable, an inherent quality of humankind.

The ultimate conclusion:

          Conflict is an inherent component of Humankind and will Never be eradicated out of                           the need to be self-identified either as individual and/or group.

Naykd Poet


cropped-naykdpoet.jpg

Since December 2011 by this blog, I’ve purged my heart, mind and soul; laying Naykd my thoughts to all, to know but, with time of near four years passage, what most did not grow, is awareness to a wisdom, my words, with hope, would sow. Yet, undaunted I pursue this work, not for the charm of accolade or renown but, for the mere chance of survival from that which ails this world; I feel so emotionally, so profound.  It is my only vehicle to solution short of violent revolution upon the corruptness metastasizing throughout this Human institution but to remain discouraged, by its prolific infusion. `Words can be mightier than the sword’ but, for that truth to be known, the right words need be shown, for the courage of strength, to be sown.

YOU


Image result for you

The world feeling stress at the seams;
Truer than life are its worst of dreams;
Hesitant are most to give it a voice;
But there comes a moment, there is no choice.

Every avenue, every domain,
Every institution, established name;
Feeling the pressure, fracturing apart;
Traditions failing those worn closest, to a civil heart.

What remedy, what resolve
Need manifest to this malaise, solve;
Far too great is their weight of dismay,
Leaving loss of hope, to see light of day.

Prophecy of scripture, resigned to by some,
Rendering providence to returning mythical Son;
But reality holds to a much stronger truth:
Solutions reside in the hearts of everyone and, YOU!
