Seven Ways of Looking at the World

A secret place
Hidden among the galaxies
Almost unimportant

A green and blue ball in the sky
Sitting among the stars
And other planets

A sanctuary for plants and animals
Where they eat and sleep
And run freely

A place where cities have been built
And skyscrapers tower over others

A wasteland for people
Cluttered with trash and plastic
Not caring what they leave behind

A place where being accepted is hard
Where you can never perfectly fit in
And everyone wears a mask
