evergreen…

evergreen

always
looking the same
as if
life eternal
each
branch populated
like a city street
or village
but
the ground
is littered
with the graves
of those
who spent
their lives
in service
of the illusion
of a world
changing
but
unchanged

  1. This is a wonderful poem, filled with truth. But I put w little bit different spin on it. I believe the world is changed by the good deeds of others and us too of course. The changes may be minute and it may effect only one person for a moment. Yes, the world remains the same. But one’s world can change.
