The snow falls softly
silently,
it knows what it is, what it is supposed to be:
it is snow.
Purely white and purely clean
I envy it

Until time progresses
the world mingles with it
mixing with it its dirt and grime, waste and evil
but why?
Why must we worry the difference?
Why must we erase such a beauty's individuality?

It starts as snow
purely white and purely clean
I envy it
until that grey day when it suffers through the stomping of man
when it is transformed
into nothing but mud and slush
that is when I understand it
we mourn its loss, all the while celebrating its departure
why must we be so cruel?
