This is your world.
Just as much as it is
theirs.

You were born into it
as was everyone before you.

Everything you know
everything you have
everything you love
is in this life
on this planet

yes
Everything
is a hard thing to
give up
That’s why those that came in before you
get upset
or sad
when they see things
change
After all,
It was all theirs
for so long
and they are cursed to watch it
slip away
inevitably
out of their control

It is sad.

But don’t feel sorry,
not for too long.
This is your world, too
And you will rule it
for a good while
You’ll come to like the way things are
because they are like that
for you
You will have made them that way

and then
gradually
before you even realize
without even thinking of it
it will all start to
slip
away
from
you, too

The world will begin shaping itself
in the likeness of the new crop.

You’ll feel powerless
You’ll feel nostalgic and
long for the old days
When things were simple
When things were all yours

But
hey
don’t let that worry you
now.

You are young.

and this

This is your world.
