|Another poem coming from a writing prompt in school, but I like this one|
Nothing exists, but atoms and the void. -I'm gonna say Lucretius until someone tells me otherwise No beginning and no end. The Universe, I mean. I must rejoin that Universe Knowledge puts up that blockade Starchild he may be Can't I be? Simply be. Be simply. Everything and nothing. Know all. Know nothing. No I strut and fret my hour Upon this stage And have my Scheme Of systematic contemplation. There is the consolation If others had not been so foolish We should be so And Poor consolation it is And I shall die and Go back from whence I came And my hour shall be done And never shall I be one. So I persist in living So I continue to learn So I regret the first time My eyes gave me knowledge Of this little stage. Tweet
