Nearing seven million millions,

Rising, growing!

Moving, roaming,

Hurting, healing,

Finding, groping.

An atom in a droplet,

Dropping in a bucket,

Spilt into an ocean,

Ever growing, ever rising,

Consuming all the land like a blob,

Like a plague.

 

The magnitude of each life,

Is balanced on the butchers knife, 

The wielders are little to none,

Yet choking, strangling,

Pistol whipping with a smoking gun.

We're crawling on in silent hopelessness.

Finding a subtle difference,

To cling to, to give the world within our mind,

Something it is yet to find.

We purchase with a worn out soul,

A niche in history to bury our bones,

And a final completion of our shallows goals.
