Words 365/36

This Perfect World

 

All this was right, before we touched it

Before we made our mark

Before we took control

It all worked just fine

Without us

But now we are the ones

Who decide

What actions are right and those which are not

For the sake of ourselves

And our world

But it didn’t used to be this broken

That is our doing

By thinking we knew how

We didn’t though

We believed we had skill

They call it intelligence

But really we were the fools

We should never have touched

This perfect world.
