A New Day

Postby Spiritwind » Wed Jan 02, 2019 4:22 pm

Drums beating in unison
All across the land

I see my brothers and sisters
Walking hand in hand

Through the veil of darkness
Our light doth shine the way

To the new world of wonder
Where death doth hold no sway

Where children play in peace
And the warlords fade away

Like some forgotten nightmare
Of a time that is no more

As the Queen of hearts
Doth reach that distant shore

We resurrect compassion
And empathy and love

As our only compass
Like manna from above

Let us walk together
And face the rising sun

As we all begin to sing
And a new day is begun

We raise the rainbow flag
As one race of people

Where earth is our church
And it doesn’t need a steeple
I’m not myself today, maybe I’m you

Okay, so this one is much like the last one. I sucked at poetry when I was a kid in grade school. I’m not much better now, but it’s kind of fun anyway. Perhaps with practice I will improve. I like the visuals that often accompany my words as I write. That’s probably why I do it. Just the act of writing itself can be a mood changer, in a good way. So what the hay, I will share anyway.


Children of the Sun

Riding fast as I can
With the wind in my hair
Don’t look behind me
Don’t you dare

For there you will find
The bad bogey men
Whose horrors and hardship
Will surely descend

Gone days of old
Where peace ruled supreme
Children playing in the sun
Not a fear to be seen

Even the animals
Had no need to run
For in those times
We were forever young

Beauty abounded
Love and gratitude too
Until things went dark
And the bogey men said BOO!

Like a forgotten dream
That fades when awakened
It truly feels
Like we’ve been forsaken

Where is God now
In these times of chains
And struggle and strife
Seem all that remain

In our hearts we will find
What we truly seek
We just have to look
And take a peak

In the heart of the earth
Lays a sun shining bright
With loving eyes
It’s really quite a sight

We must throw off these shackles
Watch the darkness fade
See the bogey men run
We are no slaves

As our inner sun wakes
From her slumber at last
It will all be forgotten
This horrible past

As night turns to day
We look towards the east
No bogey men in sight
No more scary beasts

Nothing to run from
Nothing to fear
What lives in our hearts
Makes a sound we can hear

As the frequency grows
Forms assemble together
Seeming solid as stone
Yet light as a feather

With wings we will fly
Circling ever higher
Where death holds no sway
The dream no longer dire

We are the children of the sun
I’m not myself today, maybe I’m you
