It doesn't take much for persons to realize the individual's limitations offered by modern societies. For humanity, the desire to seek knowledge and wisdom is a limitless attraction to define Life under ever-better terms - to brave War to have Peace or Hope for Peace while having War. Self-distractions and addictions fill in the gaps.
...Revolutions of the mind spurring creations into Never-Lands to an eventual Fall over our Studies of what is Not and Could Be until life falters and the Universe or some merciful God welcomes us (or recycles us) back from our Human Revolt...
If there's anything useful to tell the humans of any world, maybe it'd be something like this:
"What you think is Life is the Revolution, and Humanity is Fighting to Lose with Systems of Knowledge, Economics, Politics, Wisdom, Faith, Love, Control, and Hope. Welcome!"

Sometimes I would like to tell my students, “revolt, write, study. Don’t you guys think there is anything useful to tell the world?” Unfortunately, some of them think “it’s better not to think much,” and others feel like there isn’t…
It makes me think:
Isn't this were humans live?
in that gray zone of being a human being
where "Hate" and Love somehow meet
God knows the color of human dreams...
A very inspirational poem... It captured my imagination in some aspects. In my opinion, the idea of "Hope" is a necessary foundation of the human psyche ... and possibly the one element necessary to step beyond the "I Am" and into "What It Can Be" around us.
Even in between dark and light,
where self-doubt breeds,
and hatred rears its flaming head,
God made manifest our dream.
We have risen from humble nests.
Between highs and lows,
where self-worth downward spirals,
