The Sun is Always Shining…



The sun is always shining,

even when there is no proof.

Eclipsed by density of colors gray,

that cast shadows upon my roof.

The sun is always shining,

earth eagerly beckons its heat.

All living forms wait with baited breath

in their designated seats.

The sun is always shining,

from corridors high above.

Invisible to the naked eye,

is God’s undying love.

The sun is always shining,

when rain is slow to end.

Waiting in the wings to comfort me,

much like a loyal friend.

Imagine A World…

Imagine a world, where racism didn’t exist,

where ‘segregation’ and ‘separatism’ never kissed.

Imagine a world, where all skin is thick,

ugly words and behaviors fail to stick.

Imagine a world, where color is blind,

and people strive to be loving and kind.

Imagine a world, where wounds are no more,

no one is out to settle a score.

Imagine a world, that is honest and fair,

where everyone counts, because everyone cares.

If I Could Tell You…3

If I could tell you about my brand new song,

now inspired by the love I’ve wanted for so long.

If I could tell you about the happiness I feel,

my moments of joy, would you try to steal?

Now gone from your life, do you now regret,

all the time we spent, the day that we met.

Or could you just be happy for me?

Things turned out the way they should be,

If I could tell you, would you believe?

Your apology accepted, I thoroughly receive.
