One Bright Star


In a world, so dark,
hope fading, storms looming.
we search, we plead,
for one bright star.

One light, within the darkness,
one truth amidst the lies,
We seek a strong woman,
a compassionate man.

In a world filled with
anger, terror, lies, pain,
we search for one flower
that survives the killing frost.

One bright star, to light the night.
The hope of  one child’s smile,
The courage of the young.
Or wisdom of age.

We live, we suffer, we cry.
We laugh, we celebrate, we smile.
We react, or we ignore,
We choose to shine or fade away.

    Yes, Yes, Yes! All the powers, all the hopes, all the beauties are found on that way among all the rubbish and what is forsaking and empty us.
