No Need For Change

Location

Yellow leaves, from the maple tree that lined our street

Falling stars race across the sky; it makes me fall to my feet

Ancient soil spread across the surface similar to dropping marbles

It stretches forever, like an ocean of time

Trees a vibrant green

Flowers almost florescent, a beauty team

Snow falls gracefully from the sky and I take it all in as if it’s all mine

Crystal cold burn pierces my tongue, a hint of lime

Electricity in the air from the melancholy weather

Shims to shards of transparent glass tare

Melts buttery through my sand paper hands

Rapid rivers rip through eroded rocks

Plum orange suns set like a thousand splendid suns

Horizon’s peek shimmery morning light

Shooting into your vulnerable eyes like a loaded gun

Stinging attraction across your body, the pores tighten

Embody me with summer sand, there the skin will tan

Wind whistles currents almost like clear waves above our heads

Blue rain pitter patters on the tops of tall trees

Reflection of shine that sparkles freely

It leaves a glorious taste

 

 

There is so much beauty in the world

Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once

And it’s too much

My heart fills up like a balloon, it’s about to burst

 

 

Others search for change to fulfill their thirst

They wish for unlimited food and no sickness

Wallowing the fear of mongering ugliness

They say let’s end war, poverty and pollution

Though now it’s too late

What the world had to give was not respected

 

 

Let yourself be inspired by the wonder

Attempting to change what doesn’t need to be changed

Unforgiving allure sprouts from jagged roots

We try to spare the innocent from the evil

A quest such as that cannot be shielded

No doubt there is much ugly revealed

But possessing virtue surmounts all

 

 

There is so much beauty in the world

Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once

And it’s too much

My heart fills up like a balloon, it’s about to burst

 

 

The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways

 The point is to change it

Sway it, but don’t destroy it

Counteract all the ugly in the world

Is to be the change we want to see
