MASTERS OF OUR DOMAIN

By Al Garcia

We are the masters of our domain -- this small blue globe we call earth, and home. 

We have created beauty beyond imagination in works of art that have withstood the scrutiny of time. 

We have built edifices that have survived the fall of empires and outlasted dynasties. 

And yet, we are the cruelest and most remorseless species upon the earth.  Delusional in believing we are separate and above all else that roams the earth. 

We deceive ourselves when we gratuitously praise ourselves for having wisdom, insight and forethought, while we go about indiscriminately disturbing and killing the balance of nature, in shear contempt for not yet having mastered creation itself.

We have become the antithesis of why we were created.  We have become the masters of our unstable and deranged domain.
