Sculptors
Gregory Mogren

I look at the world and think
gods have walked here.
Gods of industry
Gods of literature
Gods of war

Individuals who shaped the world
and are never again known.
Never recognized
Never remembered
Never cared about

Their names are forgotten
lost to the concept of forever.
Forever fallen
Forever lost
Forever dead

These gods have saved lives
they never met.
Mothers
Fathers
Children

Every move the gods made
shaped the world.
Every step
Every choice
Every god

We are their successors
we shape the world.
Forever
For eternity
Till death

We walk in the shadows of gods
