A Movement

LOOK UP

it's a movement
meant, to pass
it on, move it
forward

it's a move,
meant to better
the human race
to put it back
in its place
of wonder

so profound is
its meaning, that
most people
pass it by

looking down
not up
and around

but down at
what seems
to be the ground
beneath each
of our feet

of course it's not
the ground or
the earth they
look at...it's
a device made
to make
you

believe it delivers
more of a choice
while silencing
all other's voice
making
their choices
louder

visual noise
that destroys
our ability
to use words
correctly

communicate
directly to one
another to smile

if we choose
the right words
rather than the
word that's been
branded by marketing
then we are
proactive in finding
meaning in looking
it up...look up the
word
don't oogle
it

to oogle is
to ogle the world
the desire to look
but not touch
which means
the meaning gets
lost

if u 'look it up'
rather
than say 'oogle it'
then you learn
the word rather
than posing as
if u know it

to oogle is to
pose, to be a
poser of knowledge
rather than a reader
who takes in knowledge
when you
'look it up'.

tear your eyes
off the screen
u command your
scene to 'look up'

the movement
to pass on to
everyone you
know

is to stop looking
down and oogling
at what isn't real
'look up'
and say 'look it up'

cus if u don't
ur knowledge
won't go very
far ~

and in the
process u
might be hit
by a car! !


So
Look up
and Look it
up! !don't
be branded
a fool cus
technology
tells u it's cool

and don't think
you know where
you are in the
middle of the
herd

did you hear
to 'look up'
so the stampede
of life doesn't
pass you by
or trample on
your dreams
to have freedom
and time to
use your eyes
and your mind!

look it up
and you will
find the beauty
of all that's
aligned in the
sky and the world
as you look up
YOU CAN FEEL

you are no longer
the follower of
knowledge, saying
a brand when u
truly command
the knowledge
you read...

it was yahooo we
felt as if 'eureka'
we found it'
when that knowledge
was first introduced
to you... with
that search engine

'the engine that
could' you did
everything
'you can' to
look up the
information
that is now
in the palm
of your hand
like the apple
from the tree
of knowledge

and now when
you say 'look
up'and
'look it up'
u are no longer
looking down
to eventually
fall off the ledge

you are
the tree
of life
the flower
to see and the
air to breath in
the freedom of
knowing and
seeing

the use of your
mind is the
beauty of having
the luck to know

that when we
say 'look up'
and 'look it
up',

others
will
feel that
energy too
move it forward
looking up towards
growing up towards
the branches of
life

no longer married
to the branding
of limited choice
in saying'oogle it'
and giving up
your voice

but
making the choice
to see what is real
when we look up
a word, look up
at our world
as we cross the
street, to greet
and meet all
that is - is that
which surrounds
us

but we will
never
see it
unless
we
LOOK
UP
