Reverse Axis

Stumbling stars

Catch cold

From screams prayed to heaven

Of empty promises

That never are fulfilled

Their lights blur ever so slightly

Eon after eon

Trails of their tears

Collected from observing

Deluding their sky vision

No longer do they see

Vistas now dingy

Overgrown forest of space are

Untended gardens

Of entitlement

Never hearing gratitude

But banal platitudes

Insincere

Hollow

Cynical

 

Stars were born to help,

They were born to guide

But the axis is contrary

Gravity pushes away gifted comfort

And we’ve lost our way

being enveloped in darkness.

 

It inhales our souls.

 

But child, hear me cry:

We must be different!

We must continue to wish

On sad, crying stars

They’ve lost their way

They’ve lost their belief in love.

It is us,

who will comfort them.

We must be their sky.

It is us.

Unconditionally, it is us.

    That, is the pain, in waiting on those empty promises that people will make to you, you’d expect them to deliver, and yet, they never do, and you just, keep on, getting disappointed again, and again, it’s, a really awful way to live like that…

      Completely missed this one.
      This is about paying it forward, about taking accountability for the ugliness in the Universe, and living in love as an example for those who are lost but who once showed us to live and love.
