It does not matter now

It does not matter now

A trail littered with

Broken hearts

A selfish deed

Bruised ego

Propped up by

Narcissism

Or spur of the moment

Foolish stubbornness

Mistake unrectified

Or a desire to hurt

A lonely heart ponders

As solitude weeps

The train had left

The station

Long ago

It does not matter now

Rose lonely today

Alas, winter’s brutal cold

But hope does exist

Will

Will you marry me
Imagine how many
Lovers may be waiting
Longingly to hear these

Will is not short for William
I think everybody knows that
Long ago some important dudette
Lovingly may have slurred Will as Bill

Will of mine I will not
Impose on anybody
Lightly will I tread
Lonely if need be

Will to you everything that is mine
Inherit all that belongs to me
Life is to give, cherish and love
Live happily with what you have

World

World we live in
Only one that we know
Routinely we do think
Lonely are we in the universe
Do we have others like us anywhere

While we may believe
Out there may be others
Right at this moment
Looking at us from light years away
Do not have any hard evidence

Why then do we bother
Onus is on us humans
Really to make this world
Livable for all the species
Diversity be embraced, celebrate life

We are the caretakers
Of the only place we call home
Rulers never, though some may dream
Learning not to respect nature
Destruction beckons to us all

World belongs to every one
Our solemn duty is to preserve and nurture
Ruining this world by our activities, making
Living hell of our only home
Does that do any good to any one
