The sun sets on another day…
I watched sunset through the trees and revelled in the colorful display of excitement. It isn’t often that so many colors show up as winter embeds itself across the horizon.
For the last couple days I have been considering a lot. I know that is not easily measurable, because a lot is more than a little but less than too much. No matter how you slice it I sat today trying to decide how to approach the world and the thoughts rapidly rummaging through all of the corners of my mind. Because everything is abstract I think I’m going to start today with a poem.
I see the day and see the night and all that runs between
I feel the morn and feel the right and leaving right is left it seems
I hear the words and feel the sounds and silence would be better
If everyone listened to what was said then nothing would ever be better
I hear the fights inside their minds and know that fury is there
the men and women without a care rip minds, souls, hearts without care
when the sky is bright the light drives evil or does it now today
when people stay with no escape, and pain can’t show a way
If hot stove touched we learn to go, but ripped mind and heart don’t count
For no quarter given and nothing taken excuses easily mount
I see it all and I hold back, I watch the cards fall loose
and as I do I hold my tongue even as I want to use a noose
Why can’t we see what others feel, why can’t we listen and hear
Why can’t each person see inside and know that we are dear
Why can’t the silence find the world and light a well wrought path
So each person, you and old, can see a way, and avoid their epitaph
I will keep trying, I push so hard, to try to open eyes
perhaps that push to show and tell with be my own demise
For each of us is who we are, with bias deep and wide
and I am just one who tries to show each one another side
Perhaps it will make a difference.
So as the sun sets on another day, consider everyone and find your way to see past you, and perhaps your life will change for the better. Live life every day with all the power you can, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep living…
