Stargazing

Star Gazing Inverness

For light-years I have watched the world unravel

Its thirst for the material unleashed beneath,

Coiled in deep slumber their sense of wonder

Trailed by the night, a world’s absconded dream-scaped sheath.

 

Existence ephemeral turned to ashes

And mantled by desires for decrepit stuffs,

When I will outlast the world entire

Without once imparting their feeble lusts.

 

To you this passing time is cruel. Use it well.

Remember that your winnings are but earthly dust

And only memories are yours to hold awhile

So live, humanity. Don’t crave that which won’t last.
