Look Up!

Stargazing

Starry-NightWe are so small,
And it scares us.
Staring up at a sky so infinite,
While it looks down on us
With so much pity.

She,
The sky,
Watches us without fear or flinching
While we
Raise our fist
Point our guns
And threaten to bathe her in fire.
And she,
Is only move to tears.

She says,
How can you be so small,
And be so blinded?
So unable to see
The beauty
Surrounding you,
Here,
Now,

On this speck spiraling
Through infinity.
Or more so,
How can you not see
The beauty
In
Each
Other.

Instead
You are as mice
Trying to show the universe
How grand
And how threatening you are.
But you,
Are only a threat to each other.
Murderers.
Destroyers of dreams.
Shatterers of hope.
Killers of
Children,
The innocent,
And the most vulnerable.

You have before you
Impossible wonders
To explore.
You,
Though small,
Could lift off
And touch the stars.
Discover
Unimaginable beauty,
But
You
Can’t even see
The beauty in each other.

Please.
For the sake of your survival,
For your
Children’s
Children’s
Children,
Be better.
Choose greater!
Look up!
I am waiting for you.
