This picture is showing how time flies and just goes by very quickly so we should live our life to the fullest with no regrets. The bird wing and the plane wing bot represent the clock flying in the sky in 2 different perspectives. As well as the clock that is showing that time is flying.
Phones. They are rapidly evolving and people are starting to rely more and more on phones and technology like it. Today phones have the ability to do many incredible things. More people than ever before are beginning to rely on technology as a news source. The fact that people can get news and other information in real time is incredible, but it can cause people to lose sight of things that are right in front of them. These people are too busy reading a news story about the California wildfires that they didn’t see that the wildfire was happening all around them. The burning house in the article is theirs but they can't look away from their phone long enough to realize what is truly happening to their home and to the extent of the damage being done around them.
“You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better
The souls escaping, through this hole that its gaping
This world is mine for the taking
Make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is borin', but superstardom close to post mortar
It only grows harder, only grows hotter
He blows us all over these hoes is all on him
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the globetrotter”
Requiem of the Air
I float like a cloud of soft cotton,
whispering on the wind,
lighter than the air you breathe,
lighter than the smallest beings your eyes can see.
My molecular brethren surround me,
all of us excitedly journeying,
journeying to deep space.
I have been disbonded.
I float freely.
A carbon in the wind.
But suddenly, I am trapped.
There is a traffic jam ahead.
Rows and rows of gases lie before me.
We are all trapped by a knotted net of mankind's making.
I am forced to stay in the atmosphere,
to fly around,
not allowed to leave.
So I stay, and more carbons join me.
Why won’t you let me go?
Why haven’t you set us free?
So we watch and cry as the ice melts,
as the water rises,
as millions of animals are displaced,
as whole cities are forced inland.
Do not blame us,
for your excruciating pain.
We had no choice,
we had nothing we could possibly gain.
Do not take blame that belongs to you,
And make it our burden to bear.
You did this to yourself,
we did nothing that could ever compare.
