THOUGHTS ON A SUNSET

Yesterday while watching the sun set

I thought how nature is so beautiful…

and yet

 

I find myself hesitant…afraid

at the world before me man has made

 

At all the horrible things we’re doing

At all the bitterness and hatred brewing

 

As the sun descended this thought entered my mind

There is a way to make the world kind?

 

And though this may be hard for some to swallow

I believe it depends on who we follow.

 

What if at sunset…when today is done

We stop following fools with power…fools with guns

 

And when we awake to a new sunrise

We follow only leaders whom we think are wise.

 

So at future sunsets we’ll just enjoy the view

 

Like, I believe, we were meant to do.
