The future

Life is like a dozen lines

Of a poem larger by ten times

It is the shorter of a grander scale

The story of us this scale will tell


The story of the mountains we climbed 

The story of the bridges we crossed

The story of the names we signed

The story of the ones we lost


And a simple life will enter the scheme

Of a poem answering to a larger theme

But even the smallest segment adds to the whole

To dismiss this is a hefty toll


Life will flourish and flow

Long after our minds lose their creative glow

And we will be what we are

Long after we touch the stars
