Sunken in the Depths
How wondrous Nature is, and how deadly
These things we adore become.
Yes, a rose has thorns,
But this destruction, it knows no bounds.
Water creates life, it allows for prosperity,
Yet we forget the harm it can bring,
For our busy lives hide from us
The reality, the brutality, of nature.
Places where I once tread
Are now sunken in the depths.
I walked through there yesterday,
But I swim through today.
And as I wade through the streets
I look at the darkness around,
For the city that never sleeps,
Has just been put to bed.
