The Shape of Water

So much to know, so little time to learn
To think of all the unsolved mysteries
Still trying to understand all that we know
How sad, most go through life just passing time

Our life is but a tick on time's big clock
We, less than a speck of cosmic dust
Significant only by the fact we are alive
Yet insignificant in the grandest scheme

So arrogant in our ignorant intelligence
Thinking ice is the shape of water
Consumed by greed, vanity and vice
Destroying the only place we know life exists

The laws of math are universal
Like humans, stars live and die
One day our sun will burn out
Until then, we are our own worst enemy
