Pioneers' grave

Many visionaries came ahead of their time.

Like snow melting in the desert sand

ideas wilt in unworthy hands

starry nights filled with the mundane

strangle and maim the new and restrain



Like rain barraging the surface of the ocean

new is dismissed and the old is preserved and frozen

in time

but nothing is everlasting in nature’s motion


Like a molecule of air in open space

words dissipate and a void is replaced

suitable environments are needed for nurturing

if none exist, they'll simply just waste


Fear of new worlds appearing

Fear of the unknown domineering

Better remain and stay persevering


Ideas of yesteryear and to death endearing


Like a beam of light at the end of a cave

the new is new, and a path it paves

creativity and progress exponentially expand

uplifting the whole, new horizons at hand

    Fear of new worlds appearing Fear of the unknown domineering Better remain and stay perseverin These lines were very relatable because I do have this fear and it overwhelms me so much. Loved your poem!
