Looking up into
the past
as we sit in
the present
pondering about
the future
By the time
your light reaches me
I’ll have already
left
a mark on this
Insignificant planet
Scar tissue
to be admired
but forgotten
and when your
light shines down
on us
you’ll be long gone
too far to hear
the awestruck gasps
of your admirers
too late to realize
that your presence
left a twinkle in
the sky
in the eyes of
mankind

but more importantly
will they mourn for you?
like a snuffed out god
of some ancient
clan?
reaching our hands
high
toward the celestial sphere
to touch the heavens,
if only for a moment.

Dedicated to Crystal, who inspired this and helped title it :) Thanks dear!

I like this and it speaks to the egoic and should bring some footing to those that think too much of themselves. I would like to invite you to 1markt.wordpress.com and particularly to a poem called Too Soon which was written for Michael Jackson’s passing, but which ask some of the same questions you have raise, although with what I think is much more empathy and deservingly so. I welcome any comments, or critiques or criticism you may offer, because clearly you have something to say.
Sincerely,
1markt
