I am like a Greek tragedy no one reads anymore. But make no mistake, everyone knows my title. I just don’t matter as much as I used to. Once upon a time, when all this was a sea of green, I was the king of the hill, the man on the mountain, the Tarzan of this jungle. My looks fell in sink with the bright new philosophies of my youth. I was going to be the centre of the universe, forever. We brought knowledge and humanity to these ignorant, beautiful yes, but ignorant shores. How could we have known what was to come? How everything we knew and held dear would evaporate into thin air and later come down raining hard upon us? How from that rain, our legacy would grow? A legacy we, I, could never familiarize, identify with.

Oh I am still here for sure. Couldn’t be talking to you if I wasn’t. But now that it’s all concrete and glass and asphalt, I don’t feel like much anymore. I am old and people pass me by. Buildings pass me by. Everything passes me by. When I look up all I see, day after day after day, is how my time passes me by. I have felt so small for so long that I can’t even remember what it felt like to be, to feel, big, larger than life. Only when I look at the mountain and think of the river and the ocean, do I feel the slightest of tickles from the past.

I was in the middle of nature. They have practically eradicated nature. But like me, they will get what’s coming to them. One day they will figure it out. No matter how much steel they have in their structure, even they won’t outlast the mountain.
