And #3 by @oliviaa_m_lynne
As the city cried for help,
And the valleys wiped the tears,
The future stood ahead,
But the world stood no fear.
The stars seemed to fade, and the world began to shine,
But no one seemed to notice, with such little time.
Color shadowed itself. Now we’re back to black and white.
Who knew the stars would fall as we turned on our lights?
Now the valleys cry too, and our world begins to die.
It’s too late to wipe the tears when we already scraped the sky.
The pages are now gone, and the story seems to shatter.
And we will only point our fingers when it really begins to matter.
~ Olivia M’Lynne
