Cherry Blossoms, by Brian37

Cherry Blossoms, By Brian37

 

Oh how we exalt ourselves

Generation after generation

Bathing our blood

In self importance

 

And without concern

The blossoms bloom

Without fret

Of our strife

 

Our carcass's strewn

In the field of time

Amongst green and white

Who continues on

 

Our petty beefs

Are nothing to life

Cherry blossoms

Are not concerned

 

In our grandeur

We boast and gloat

For ever our mantra

A a hollow fate

 

As petals drop

And decay

So does life

And our universe

Neat. What does green and

Neat.

 

What does green and white signify?

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.

I was walking home today already knowing how absurd it is for humans to think they are special, and I looked up at a cherry blossom tree knowing that it didn't have the capability of caring weather I lived or died, and then looked around me at all the plant life surrounding our man made structures shouting at myself, " WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE SO FUCKING IMPORTANT?"

HOW can any human look around them and see obvious signs that there are other life forms that outnumber us and then selfishly think this is all designed?

Green and white represent the oblivious cherry blossom that doesn't give a rats ass as pretty as it is about humans nor does it know what I know, that our fate is the same and the same as the universe.

Spring comes, and the grass

Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
