The Time Traveler

I want to be a time traveler.
Not to change history, or to undo bad things.
I just want to see the world unfold. 
Watch the sunrise before kings were born.
Witness the stars before fire was tamed.
See the lives of humans before we had cars

 

I want to be a time traveler.
Not to stop wars or change the outcome.
I just want to watch the rising of men.
Witness the horror of war.
See the beauty in this story.
Watch how humans overcome.

 

I want to be a time traveler.
Not to make myself rich or steal ancient treasure
I want to witness to rise of Rome 
See the ancient colors
Watch when civilization begins
Witness the beauty of man

 

I want to be a time traveler.
Just to see the world.
Watch before we changed it
Witness the beginning of the story
See it all unfold.

 

I want to be a time traveler.
