day sky above sand
gunpowder wrapped in paper
night sky below stars
stellar pyrotechnic hues
splash the dark with light
I’m floating without direction…?
What is or isn’t…?
Does it matter…?
Pull me in,
Give me grounding;
I’ll share my warmth,
And neither of us now
Shall find ourselves lost
Gazing into the light
Before the premature night.
Sol emitting photonic vibrations,
Luna awaiting syzygy’s translation.
What is what I see?
Is it anything of reality?
I see vibrant colour,
Gradients and hues, or
Is it not
What I thought?
Why can’t you listen?
Are you afraid
To think about
The beliefs you hold
Because you doubt
Your beliefs will hold?
Why can’t you hear anything else?
Why can’t you think about this?
Do you have to see
Those whom with you disagree
As something less than you?
As something completely inhuman?
Why can’t you see them as people?
Why can’t you accept who they are?
Why can’t you change your mind?
The divide is tearing us apart!
Every person has a heart,
But you won’t let them be a part!
Why can’t you let them be?
Why can’t you try to see?
Why can’t you give it a chance?
Why can’t you ponder your stance?
If you want them to understand us,
Why are you pushing them away?
Why can’t you have them stay?
Why can’t you stand them at all?
Why can’t you be tolerant like you say?
Why can’t you show them your love?
Why can’t you let them listen?
Is love driven by hate really love?
I mark this day for you,
And we celebrate it for you.
It’s special not for the number,
But for the time it represents.
We have grown so much.
