"To whom it may concern" by Sakura Nakada -Grade 10

To whom it may concern

To whom it may concern,

I have often wondered
at the marvels the world offers us;
at the time given unto each
and how thick the boundaries to cross.

I have often noticed
that we like to think ourselves
creators of our surroundings;
that we think we can dream without consequence.

There are things joyful and things hurtful
that make out nature humane;
that make us part of our heritage
and yet not fully appreciative.

If I was granted one wish,
I would hope for our feathers never to be lost.
I would have hoped for remembrance and forgiveness.
I hope for more, but less.

I sometimes like to wonder
at our greatness in our ways on this small earth.
