Our Blue Marble

Poem By Nick Sym

I look up into the sky,
and wonder what is in store
For in this the grand Universe,
there must be a whole lot more

Was it God's intention?
for us to be alone
On this bluish marble,
in the heavens, we call our home

There must be brothers and sisters,
out there, trying to say hello
For all that we have done as people,
what do we have to show

It is the cries of the starving children,
that we seem to ignore
No, it is not our problem, so in our hearts,
we conveniently close the door

Maybe it is the beggars and the homeless,
the one's we turn our heads from each day
Could it be the aged and the handicapped?
our wishes for them to go away

It is time for us to pay,
for our mistakes
To rectify the situation,
no matter what it takes

Get rid of the poisons from the air,
and let the babies breath
Shed the blackness from our souls,
and once again start to believe

Clean the lakes and oceans,
from the smell of death
Give our mammal cousins,
a long awaited breathe

This is our planet,
the big blue marble we call our home
But do not be mistaken,
for we are not alone.

Energy Equals

The ideas scurry through my fingers,
as the words of a broken thought
Finding no conclusive truth,
to the answers I have sought

Wasted Days

I have lived to be a ripe old age,
for what reason, I still do not know why
Thinking about how I used my years,
I put my hands to my face and cry

Always Mine

Leaving footprints in the sand,
hand in hand you walked with me
As the sun slowly faded,
into the gentle blue sea

Bottled Courage

I gently set down the bottle, for it is empty just like the last
I thought there could be a glimpse of the future, but with this
drink there is only the past


Without the darkness,
there could never be light
