NOT A Cynic

I am an environmentalistI am an activistI am a realist I am an elitist And I AM an Atheist But I am NOT a damn cynic!!  I believe that with our own hands we are destroying the organisms that roam this planetWith NO acknowledgement of the fact these are the same beings we evolved fromI believe that this is a cause worth fighting forAnd for a NONEXISTENT GOD’S SAKE I believe it is realBECAUSE IT IS  And yes, I am angryBecause I freaking should be.Every day I see those who choose to ignore scienceMore than often because of their “beliefs”But it isn’t about beliefs anymoreIt is about being ignorant.   Ignorance ISN’T bliss It is hazardous  This planet will shake us offLike a horse shakes off flies.The notion that WE are destroying the planet is idioticThe planet will be just fineWE are merely destroying its inhabitants  I am an environmentalist I am an activist I am a realistI am an elitist And I am an atheist But I am not a cynic…Or maybe I just don’t know what that word means
