Ancient Mexico’s poet saw it way before the heavily ideological Climate Change quarrels from both sides.
One side says Climate Change suddenly appeared, blaming fossil fuels (instead of many other made factors).
The other side is either in denial human activity has anything to do, or call for more science evidence.
Ayocuan Cuetzpaltzin talked about the ephemeral nature of our existence as people. He lamented how people and things have to perish. So in his poem he says that at least our planet, which in nahuatl ancient indigenous people called it Tlalticpac, should remain.
Let us live and love freely — war is more cruelly! And yet, you have chosen. We may back down at many things but never in matters of life and love.
Excerpt from Till Stars Shut Their Eyes.
We live in a time very similar to that which Yacanex along her beloved Atotoztli lived in the late 1200’s. The moment when governments impose upon us how to live and whom to love is a decisive moment to either stand down or face injustice. Just like it happened to Yacanex, it is the authority who has chosen the confrontation, not the we the people.
Pass it on! Fight for love!
