The Nature Of Things

The nature of things
The equivalency to one day compare
Changes with time and dreams
To only have us to one day dare

Humans replaceable by the thousands
We are not important as we foolishly think we are
We are human beings in the millions
Does it matter for time and experiences to have come so far?

The words of old to heed today
The modern will crush it on demand
The words of new is ‘okay’
Everything is all everybody ever want

I do not see how we have improved with time
I only see people wanting what they want
Those who cannot will always foolishly find
What contentment shall never be met when done

We change with time and change our dreams
Because everyday we can dare
That is now the natural order of things
An equivalency with no more the need to compare
