AND WE THOUGHT WE WERE IMPORTANT

And we thought we were important,
Our presence was enough,
Our ideas and our views,
Our flash-drive urges for gadget stuff.

And we thought we were in charge,
Our choice to work or laze around,
Our hands on the global steering wheel,
Our ticking clocks fully wound.

And we thought we mattered,
Our twenty-four-seven swagger and sway
Our way of living, our selfishness,
Our assumed ownership of night and day.

And we thought.....
And we thought.....

Until the moment nature's howl was heard,
The force of a thousand angry gods,
Landscapes where we lived vanished,
People we loved vanished,
Hope vanished,
And in their places, nothing.....

And we thought we were important,
And we thought we were in charge,
And we thought we mattered.
