Contending with what we cannot change
Do not slide into sombreness
when dark clouds cry
and lightning cracks
in fervent passion.
This orchestration will give way
to splendid rays and gainful growth.
Let bountiful blitheness seep
into your being.
Scenes of dread so dark
are but a prelude to brightness
to imbibe and take away with us,
to calm, soothe and strengthen us
'gainst world leaders who thrive on power, lies and money in their pockets
as temperature rise in fashion unprecedented in our time
(while a deaf and sightless figure won't hear or see the truth).
And may our inner light steel us
'gainst political storms and fractiousness beleaguering our planet.
