A Planet Without a Myth


A planet without a myth

A planet whirls and streaks through the cosmos

Its inhabitants have no idea who they are.

They cannot agree on even the most basic truths.

They have no story to unite them.

They do know their identities, do not know what they must do, and do not know where they are going.

They do not know their proportion, their relation to each other, their relation to the planetary ecosystem and their connection to their descendants and eternity.

Confusion and pain, loneliness and war, despair and emptiness

A planet without a myth
