Upsetting the gloom
Amidst the gloom that pervades the world,
Could we shine like the radiant sun.
Locked we may be to wherever we are
As the world runs its course.
But we must know that we are mighty.
Each one of us; like the great sun we bow down to!
To all others we may seem shrunken,
And too distant to be of any help.
But to ourselves we can seem fervent,
As we work at home, warm and unclouded!
We could be bright but not garish,
Ponder how the lumbering sun; travels the farthest.
We could stay right here, shine like the sun
And beget a rainbow to upset the gloom.
