“AND PEOPLE STAYED HOME”

 

And people stayed home

And read books and listened

 

And rested and exercised

And made art and played

 

And learned new ways of being

And stopped and listened deeper

 

Someone meditated, someone prayed, someone danced

Someone met their shadow

 

And people began to think differently

And people healed

 

And in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways

Dangerous, meaningless and heartless

 

Even the earth began to heal

And when the danger ended

 

And people found each other

Grieved for the dead people

 

And they made new choices

And dreamed of new visions

 

And created new ways of life

And healed the earth completely

 

Just as they were healed themselves.

By: Kathleen O’Meara (1869)
