i'm not afraid of your suffering
i'm not afraid of your joy
i'm not afraid of your hunger 
your desire

i'm not afraid of your rage
i'm not afraid of your love
i'm not afraid of your lies 
or your truth

i see you
i feel you
i need you

i love you

 T E M P L E

tragic trajectory

It's a message to you alien creatures:
translated into English - my language

It's what you see, entering our atmosphere
A blue ball with brown blotches and bolts of lightning
You could probably land on the blue or the brown - preferably
but stay away from the dark parts that light up
because they are dangerous

Our sun is a star yes - a man

Our moon is just a rock - a woman
They sustain and heal us, so that we may live
In our shelters - homes or houses
and give birth to smaller humans
who carry on after we die or
cease to exist

Our children

Light skin and dark skin

continually presents problems here
Ok we don't always get along 

We fight a lot

We humans are really not so bad
Under-developed but basically good natured - really
We have our moments when we love others
Then we have others when we fear
 Especially you - an intrusion

We pray to Gods - different ones depending 
on what part of this world we live in

Religion serves and protects us
Even though many of us aren't religious

It's something we've designed/made up 
to appease the fear and suffering
ongoing and unrelenting
That strips us of our humility - our ability
to empathize with others

Despite our worship

Most will fear you - mostly because you're different
Because you pose a very real threat to our survival
Even though I know - you come in peace, and

That you care about all living things too
