The Watcher

Why have you left us?
You used to care so much 
That you camped out 
On the moon,
Hoping to save us
From our inevitable conclusion.
We thought you couldn’t save us,
But that didn’t stop you.
Did you get tired 
Of putting the pieces back together
Just to watch them crash back down? 
You still had hope when
We abandoned it;
Now you abandoned us.
We are calling,
We are screaming,
We need you.
Can you hear us?
Lace up your boots
Fill your tank with oxygen
And take your place among the stars,
Your soul shining brighter 
than all of them.
You are the Watcher
And it’s up to you
To save us all.

    Great poem, but check your email address for comments. I received an email saying this poem revived a comment, but it is not mine. Don't want you to miss out on your feedback, my accounts email is you may have something similar registered. Nice work on this though.

    My email is nothing close to that so that's really weird. But thanks for the heads up.
