A Million Years

Time marches without fail
Mountains and rivers attest
Humans are temporary visitors
The universe will never rest

Diamonds form under tremendous pressure
Animals evolve with nature’s blessing
Humans feel love souls
This strange emotion keeps us guessing

Millions of years does nothing to alleviate our fears
We can analyze this intricate emotion
But never understand our own mirror image
Don’t question love, there’s never another notion

To give in, we fight to begin again
Tempting to reveal a different route
Looking into history for the source of this elation
Forever twisting ourselves inside out

You can’t get there by space craft
No need wishing on a faraway star
The secret lies deep in your mind
Surprise, the answer was never far
