Eternal Words

I want to write a poem
Maybe it will be forever on paper
But time makes it fragile
And flame could burn it
Or hands of the world tear it first

I want to carve a pledge
Maybe it will be long lasting on rocks
But water becomes erosive
And mosses cover it
Or hands of the world crush it down

I want to shout a plea
Maybe it will be heard in the sky
But wind blows it away
And stars don’t want to remember
Or voices of the world merciless laugh

I want to keep a word
Maybe it will be safe in the heart
But memories fade it
And emotion doesn’t understand anymore
Or voices of the world coldly taint

I want to say my thought
Try every way to make it eternal
But without someone takes a notice
Still won’t be understood
