what fools are we

To delay the inevitable 
We attempt to engineer longevity
Unable to bear the burden
Of a transient
uncontrollable existence
We make ourselves gods over nature 

We will live
Then die
and be forgotten
A cycle that will never 
Outlive nature or time 
Our advancement has been rapid
Our hopes have been triumphed
By our energetic abilities
We can we feel conquer all 

Soldered to a psyche that
Seeks out any weaknesses to destroy
Makes man bold
He traduces all
Never understanding the unique balance
That is life

Our anxiety regarding our significance
Harangues our thoughts
We seek out answers on earth
And from the galaxy
We cannot rest until we
Know how time began

Must we be so selfish
Treating our brother and the environment
With no love
Condemning all with a granite heart?
Must we pretend
That we are self-created
That we sprung from the big bang?

To be occasional masters of our world
Is a responsibility we must
Not take lightly
Each stake holder has his role to play
In shaping our world

Time may be our friend 
And our understanding may become complete
But will we find what we seek?
