"If you can dream- and not make dreams your master;
If you can think- and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;" -R. Kipling

I know the sky is blue,
When it does not wish to rain.
I know the grass is green,
When it is not plagued by the human factor,
Or the sky.

I trust the sun to rise,
And set,
Given the rotation of the Earth.
I trust time to deliberately march on,
Or sprint past,
Given the events that come and go.

I accept,
That one day I will not rise.
Given the fragile gift of life.
I accept,
That others will do the same,
And when this occurs

I admit,
Tears will fall,
Given a weakness I could not overcome.

I believe in a being who claims to possess a great deal of power,
Given my childhood,
Though I have no faith in that being.

I know mankind will be its own demise,
Given human nature,
Given the world as it is now,
Given what I
and Believe,
To be true of myself.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

This is so beautiful. I felt the sentiment in this poem. The mortality of life and earth was evident and shone through. I liked how it all flowed to the end and the last stanza is my favourite...
