Earth

We are all connected
Through railroads of
similar struggles and secrets
Traces of
The distances we’ve traveled
in the worry lines
under our eyes
And the laugh lines
Around our smiles
We’ve all heard god
 in the cry of a newborn
And lost his voice
In the sound of broken hearts
We’ve all hoped for purpose
And that one day
after were gone
Our bones will still have meaning
We’ve all felt so alive
We were certain
we’d die that night
We’ve all loved
So hard we’ve shattered
And rebuilt ourselves in the morning
Strayed so far into the desert
We no longer believed
In kept promises
Until our wings
Grew tired of our pride
And carried us home
