And So The Sun
It’s been honking all morning
The highway is filled with cars
Of people trying to make it someplace different than where they are
Trying not to be late
But the traffic’s making them wait.
The cars pass by a school
They pass by some stores and shops
They pass by some restaurants and salons
All working non-stop
The day had only begun
And there’s so much to be done
Today’s a morning
Just like any other morning
Of human civilization under the sun.
What if these cars had no place to be?
What if these stores and shops closed
And people were to forced to focus only on the things they really need?
What if people were forced to spend time with themselves?
Forced to reflect and focus on their health?
What if instead of putting them to waste
People appreciated the resources they had?
Not constantly taking for granted
What’s in their grocery bag?
What if all this pollution started declining?
With the highways mostly empty
And fewer planes flying?
What if families were forced to bond
Whether or not they got along?
And the glitter and glamour of a celebrity life
What if you took away all the hype?
And forced everyone to live the same way
Forced to see they’re all alike.
And what if parents watched their kids learn and grow?
Not sending them away each day
But keeping them at home?
What if people were forced to connect
In a place where countries don’t have boundaries
Called ‘the internet.’
What if there was a deeper feeling of unity?
With more people being aware of their communities?
What if people had to redefine
The things that they find fun
Without being able to go to parties and clubs?
What if an extroverted society
Had to find a way to do things more quietly?
And so the sun
When looking down
Thought “What would happen
If things changed around?
Wonder how this would shake things up?”
I guess we’ll find out in a couple of months.
