A Poem By Stewart Levine, Esq.


Where is this going this virus thing

Has us all reflect on all the bling

What’s really important in  life

What really protects from all the strife


What are lessons you can learn

More important than what you earn

Who are the guides that help you get through

Who has answers to design something new


As we contend with mass dislocation

What is the something to provide elation

Who has perspective and wise self-talk

When asked to step in they do not balk


Why this experience foisted on us

What is the cause creating this fuss

Not just the disease that will kill many

Economic havoc may take every penny


Now is the time develop a will

In all the chaos can you be still

Quiet your chatter sniveling complaint

Forget about what was known now it ain’t


This has been brewing for many a year

Systemic collapse may finally be here

We’re paying for excess debt has come due

We became inhuman in what we’d do


In this harsh climate let us discover

We have our neighbors as sister brother

Can we rediscover our human goodness

Can we let go of all of our shouldness


Embrace the spirit of your human heart

Let that vibration become your art

Hold hands embrace all those you love

Never again give them a shove


Humans are worthy of your connection

Let those around you be a reflection

Get what you give right now we need

Let go of conditions and any greed


Embrace the real bounty and magic of life

Embrace all your goodness and be a mid-wife

This chance is here may not come again

Time to be conscious making new friends


Friends of the flowers friends of the fields

Friends of the produce that this earth yields

Rethink your life relish what’s on it

Don’t miss the heaven here on this planet


A song that embraces all that is sacred

The natural world is sincere does not fake it

A new set of values new priorities

Give thanks to all get down on your knees


There are no others to guide you home

Rely on yourself or be destined to roam

Get quiet and slow sit still and breathe

Honor your soul and those you feed


Be an example for all in your sphere

Of what it takes to really be here

Write your own story honor your heart

Let that remain your crowning art
