Welcome to Earth

Here is where I stand:
Feet trod wide and certain
Planted in the soil
Of one universe perhaps I’d create.

Eyes held to the
Always-could-be maybe-would-be stars
Of generations only I
Could bring the world

The building blocks of futures
The branch of a family tree
An endless hopeful wonder tale
Of what was or could be

To be born to give life
And then one takes your place
Every death holds a birth
Every sigh hides a smirk

Every memory that’s new
Sweeps a cloud of white dew
Over things we had once loved
And since learnt to rue.

The one thing to never forget is
To live and to love and to laugh
Until your life is spent and nothing’s left

Only a diamond heart and
Sapphire eyes – Blue from their tears
Yet sparkling with smiles
Stars for our children and
Blood for our crimes.

This is our earth
Now look to the skies
