Nothing is done until it's done: Deep thoughts tangled in the loom... we might be running out of time

Above: click to listen and play my song "Nothing is done until it's done"

Shadows may gather in darkness...

Sorry for the grim title but I really needed to vent my thoughts...
I know I haven't posted in a while, it's been a complicated while, though not as much as for others that's for sure... we only need to tune to our tvs right now.

I made this song some time ago. I wrote it originally about Climate Crisis and also for ANY cause that is worth fighting for. Everybody is witnessing what is happening these days with disbelief and heartbreak. And this is a poem and a song I wrote about been tangled in madness and the need to unravel and find a solution for things before it's too late. Needless to say I thought I wanted to share the words as a poem today because it's returned to my lips as I witness heartbroken how the world is in turmoil. I remember the fears of nuclear war when I grew up (yes I'm that old to remember the end of the Cold War and when the Berlin Wall came down, also the tales of war from our grandparents) and just felt I wanted to share it as its verses have come to my lips these days. War is always cruel and dehumanizing, that's for sure.

Also I usually simmer my posts so slowly and been a bit away... the reason is that I've needed to rest due to health... and I'm always trying to write long detailed posts, but allow me to be candid and it's a thought I wanted to share the words of the song, not only because of war but also the declarations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stating Last Monday also the UN released a bleak report on Monday, showing an accelerating crisis that requires unprecedented action to protect natural habitats and reinforce infrastructure when we reach a potentially irreversible tipping point.
"Delay is Death" -it was stated.

So even trying not to sound a bit dismal... this decade has been so dystopian, now war....a disaster movie blockbuster after another...
So I felt just to share this song just for the sake of the lyrics...
Because we might be running out of time

It's not by any means one of my most popular but I resonate strongly with every word.

We cannot get rid of this madness because we got tangled in its loom

Nothing is done until it's done (Poem)

*We might be running out of time
Feel like your spirit grows stronger
Though its challenge has only begun
There's anything it can't conquer
When the weights of the doubts are all gone
And defiant it won't weep in silence
When it feels cause is fair to be won
It's standing firm in sheer defiance
Because nothing is done until it's done
We might be running out of time
Because nothing is done until it's done
Because nothing is done until it's done
Shadows may gather in darkness
Neath the weight of impending gloom
We can't get rid of this madness
Because we got tangled in its loom

Are the circles becoming spirals?
We're the thread and the web's been spun
Let's unravel not to live in denial
Because nothing is done until it's done
We might be running out of time
Because nothing is done until it's done
We might be running out of time
We might be running out of time
And the time has come around
And nothing is done until it's done
Let these words be your waking call
(The stronger we push, the faster we fall)
We might be running out of time
Because nothing is done until it's done
Because nothing is done until it's done
Let these words be your waking call
Let these words be your waking call
We might be running out of time*

I will get a video for this song finished very soon...

I started it a while back but never finished but now I'm determined...
because as the song says... nothing is done until it's done

A wish for peace...

Humans are at war with their home planet, at war with each other, at war with life...
We need to wake up before the nightmare engulfs us whole into oblivion
There is no undo... there is no reset...

I had started to make a music video for this song and somehow I had stopped and left it unfinished but I want to get it done... Still It felt

Reply in the comments with a song and a wish for peace....

We can do better

And even emotionally exhausted as I am, I still hope for those winds of change, for that waking call... for a better future in which we don't follow the path of self destruction. So please feel free to reply this thread with something positive, a beautiful nature picture, a song you want to share...

And let's delve deep in our own actions as fellow humans...
Because our planet and the life it inhabits (maybe undeservedly so us too) are worth at least the "wondering"

And here some beauty to lift the bleakness of the post

Please feel free to reply and share nature, songs, motivational quotes...
but still... a call of awareness...
of all the beauty that is at risk

Rough times indeed but this is beautiful, epic! Sounds like a movie soundtrack or the opening song of a series, scifi/ fantasy themed. Love the flute part and all the different layers.

Un abrazo or, as we say here, um abraço

The world needs more hugs!

Aw thanks so much for the lovely feedback. For me it's a song to protect our planet and all its living thigns, for me it's a cause worth fighting for, but it's truly for any cause worth. Thank you

Beautiful song!

Thank you so much, I hope to make the video soon
