Here is a poem that I have just recently written. Hope you enjoy:
Do you see them?
When you look up at the sky can you see
The twinkling from above?
Can you feel their presence
Can you feel them?
Can you feel it?
Time passing by?
Can you feel it taking pieces from you
And replacing it with others?
Can you see the cosmos
Over the never ending bright lights?
Can you see the edge of the world
Beyond the buildings around you?
Can you see past the screens?
Can you feel, and taste the moist smooth air?
Or is it all just a blur?
Can you see past your life?
Can you see past yourself,
And who you once were,
And feel the past slipping away?
The stars are no longer what they once were
They can never be
Is that what you want?
To lose a part of history?
But is it even in your control?
Is it even yours to control?
I got asked the other day
What was the purpose of life?
Why even care at all?
I stumbled, I faltered, and I had no answer.
So now, I look up at the stars
And I see that they are no longer the
Hopeful bright lights that they once were.
And I think back on that moment
That space in time where my answer was lagging
And I wonder if this
The waning stars are my purpose
I wonder if this world around me
This fading universe
I wonder if this is what I exist for?
Have a blessed day! Miabel J. Self
