So many glittering stars,
So many enticing flowers,
So many enthralling views,
So many eventful days,
So many outstanding deeds
By so many illustrious people!
Yet, unobserved we stayed
On the outside – the onlookers.
Wars broke out, treaties were signed,
Skyscrapers were raised, discoveries were made,
Heroics were dared, and Space was straddled. ,
But the planet is rushing to doomsday
But, we stood on the wayside
Unable to stop the life threatening causes
Of air, water, and elements,
Unable to act,
Unable to change
The status quo of existential demise.
So, we remain the wayside flowers,
Merely existing for the day.
Goodness, it went from glittering stars and enticing flowers, downhill..! As life often does.Liz
It scares me that most people are not worried.
