Oh, sunny day,
Please take me away.
Away from the daily grind
To a place with no time,
Where I can finally still my thoughts
And untie this muscular knot.
A place where people know your name,
And none of them are the same.
They all have personalities different,
And yet values consistent,
Offering up a trinity
Of honor, respect, and integrity.
A place where wars don’t exist
Because we never ball a fist.
Instead the power is in words;
Leave the fighting for the birds.
I’d rather have long conversations
Than pointless confrontations.
This place may not be true,
But I’ll hold hope for one day soon
That we all may see a different light;
One of imagination and insight,
And understand each other then
When before we couldn’t comprehend.
For we are all upon this earth
To find out what our lives are worth,
Not to ruin one another in bloody battle
Like a wolf amongst the cattle.
Instead I’d like to believe
That we can all stop and breathe,
And take a moment to realize
That life is about compromise.
I don’t want to see
All the hatred and misery;
Instead I’d rather hear pleasant tales
About life’s little surprises and all they entail.
But I don’t have any influence
Over making the world more congruent,
So I sit on the sidelines with my hope
That one day we’ll all learn to cope
And appreciate the differences
And little coincidences.
It may be a pipe dream
Or just me blowing off some steam,
But I’d like to think it’s possible
To make this world more liveable
For each and every one
Without ever having to use a gun.
Normally this is not my focus of my poems
But today I feel like sharing a different tone;
Maybe it’s because I’m so tired,
Or maybe I’m just sick of all that transpires.
I’m trying to have a good day,
And felt like writing positive
Instead of everything I grieve,
And I feel better for it,
So I hope you enjoy this tidbit.
Have a marvelous day,
And may your worries all melt away.
