Remember

Remember

A Poem by Sarah_Allen
"

What's left to remember in a world we destroyed?

"
Burnt out city,
All our dreams were for nothing,
Made a name 
With no human to remember, 
Branded in the earth,
Nothing lasts forever,  

Live our lives wanting to live more, 
Carved into everyone's memory, 
'As long as they know me,
 I could never die', 

In a world destroyed, 
There's no one to look back, 
All our hope was in vain,
In a universe with no one to keep it, 
Forgetting all we achieved,
All our focus was on fame and fortune, 

'Make our place,
 Set in stone',
 But there's no one to remember in a world full of nothing, 
There's no one to polish trophies in a land that is lost,  
There's no one to explain to the earth, 

No one to say sorry, 
No one to apologize our mistakes.  
We wished to be remembered,

But It wasn't us that needed remembering

This has a mix of exasperation, sadness and disbelief woven into a longish description of man's flaws as we watch the planet incinerate.

you`re welcome
Remember the dreams that remained dreams. Remember the nightmares that remained memory. Remember the truths, remember the lies, remember the unwanted goodbyes. But most importantly remember that the world as it once was, is not the same world that is.

poetic words there, mickey. Yeah, the world isnt the same. We're ruined
I'm sad at us losing what it means to BE us...

Seems we've forgotten our dreams and how to reach...

thank you :)
you portray that sadness so well here with your images. We forget to remember the land upon which we live and to appreciate it.
The Native Americans who were here first...they understood, they cared, they lived on it and with it and took care of it.
we have destroyed...and destroyed and destroyed....our legacy.

True true! We regard the earth as just a step when it's what is our throne, without it we crumble to.. read more
