Remember Earth - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

When I look into the sky,
I like to imagine the stars and planets
as human beings who were able to transform
themselves into these super spheres, circling in
an eternal meditative realm.
The earth is but a sad and failed entity
that had launched itself too eagerly, too fast
its consciousness has crashed into a million
trillion little consciousness, moving everywhere,
some squelling, some barking, some growling,
some ointing, roaring, and alas, the little egos
have even found it apt to turn on in each other,
devouring each other
These fragmented consciousness can be revived
for eternity, and now each has to find its own way
launch not your ego before you have mastered
your art - remember earth

another version

when I look into the sky
I like to imagine the stars and planets
as one time human beings who had transformed
themselves into these super spheres,
circling in an eternal meditative realm

the earth i stand on is but then a sad and
failed entity, an overambitious being that
had launched itself before it had even mastered
the full art of meditation, the art of transformation,
so that its consciousness ow has crashed and splintered
into a trillion zillion little consciousness running everywhere,
some squelling, some barking, some meowing, some chirping, some...

these fragmented consciousness can be revived for eternity
and now each has to find its own way
and now never launch your ego before you have mastered an art
be it to become an ant or planet
remember earth

now look into the space in your mind and meditate
like the planets circling round the stars
