The Hill

At the edge of a crater lies the last sanctuary
Surrounded by the new world.
And here you will find a girl
Lost in her little piece of heaven

She never slept under the sky before
It is, to her, a giant pool
She dreams of diving into
And eating ice-cream cone clouds

As she lies on uncut grass
Drifting away to the lullaby of birds
The breeze carries away her worries
And she thinks of nothing at all

But as beautiful as the sunset is
It signals the end of the day
And Cinderella must go
Taking with her only

A glimpse of a world
Before human civilization
Before the stars were cloaked
In the glow of progress


Note: This wasn't meant to be anti-industry, but it makes me sad to think of how beautiful and alive the world was before we "paved paradise and put up a parking lot".
