The screaming of an ant      

To walk throw the wet grass hearing the voice of the earth and the voice of the sky, uniting you with the universe, but remaining yourself. The world means variety: different cultures, different religions, different races, all reunited under an only name: humanity. It is tried the promoting of a culture of peace and universal peace, but this feeling it's being stopped by some mentalities and prejudices. We live in a world of hate, a selfish world, a world that's always in a hurry, a world in which harmony is completely lacking. Day by day we see bare, lifeless eyes with no soul glitter behind them, looks starving for money and power…

Daily we stomp on sensitive people enlightened minds… The human kind is heading to the abyss … Souls die, vanish… The voice of humanity is like the screaming of an ant. Exactly like in the earliest beginnings of the world there is a fight for survival, for supremacy. The soul ended up with the
last place and drops of life flow in nothingness. Time is running and we don’t care. We live long shallow lives. Feelings are for sale, art started to slowly disappear and the upraising soul is agonizing. We use death as a weapon that is available to anyone and wars became a toy in the hands of power…

“Quo vadis...?” this should be the question. It would be impossible to answer it. Would we know ever again to complete harmony? Humanity will ever again close itself in a ring, or it will form a chain of love? Love means life; from it everything else takes birth… That’s why we should learn
love one another and in a while we should go away from our computers and wash our eyelashes with the dew drops on a leaf from which the life vibrates.
