We look to the stars for guidance, but not within our own hearts

Stargazer

 

I lift my eyes to the heaven above.

I gaze at the stars devoid of love.
Devoid of hate and so benign
To you mankind looks for a sign.
Foolish people full of doubt
Hoping you can help them out
Unwilling Concierges of humankind
But have no clue as to your true design
If stars could speak to us on Earth
Would you tell of the Universe birth?
Instead we seek to tell of love or wealth
Mankind should be ashamed of itself
So out of chaos, you were born
And have no interest in Earth unadorned
