A Poem by Leslie Marie

Inspired by The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. "I believe the universe wants to be rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance."


crafted from dirt and raised by the trees,

yet a sense of doubt amidst a vast sea of evidence,

literally screaming,

tugging at the edges of our consciousness,

begging to be noticed,

dying to be felt,

withering ever so slowly each time we fail to see what encompasses us,

the universe desperately needs to be noticed,

we are its observers,

what is beauty without someone to marvel at it,

created to be seen and experienced,

we are given the mountains and the stars and marvel at steel cities,

an artificial generation breeding more of the same,

the blind mother the blind,

feeding them from their shallow pool of insight,

blissful ignorance of our own demise,

not of the body but of the mind's eye
