Elements by gilad Elements by gilad

Four elements to the existence of life on our planet
The cold and wet water
The hot and dry sun
The air that surrounds us all
The earth that absorbers it all

The fifth element is the one that unbalance this equation.
The fifth element is us, the righteous humans
In the center of everything, playing god with this planet
Changing nature to fit our way of living

The sun is hotter and the water is rising
The air is polluted and the earth is dying
But we are god and we are right
We rather be blind then give up a fight

And this is why we go to wars
Coexisting seems to be the hardest thing
When we all are the most important
And everything else must change

The same way we put ourselves above others
We put ourselves above this planet, above life
The elements of life are what brought us all here
But the fifth element may take it all away. Us


****

A point to think about. Maybe to acknowledge our role in these elements. Maybe to simply learn how to enjoy this nature in a more passive way, rather than manipulate it.
I would like my children, and my children's children to be able to still take photos like that.

Just like I think of it. The humans think they are more then other beings. They put animals in cages and burn forests so we live better. People only think of themselves.
Just think of it, if some other beings would put us in cages and would slaughter us and fatten us just to eat us. We would say, that would be crazy, that would be unhuman. Well, who are the animals now?
Beautiful work Gilad.

I totally agree with you! As a Christian, I understand that God placed us above all other living things; but where as others say they should bend to our command, I think we should be more like watching over them and helping them. Just like Jesus did, when he came down... I loved the photo by the way. How it featured all the elements and put us in the middle, but really you can see that everything that surrounds us is just as important (perhaps more) as us. This makes me all sad now...
