Daybreak

Have you ever seen the dull, grey underbelly of the sky? It exposes itself when darkness fades and the sky is no longer black, nor is it blue; just before the sun arises to burn off the colorless night. As the sky becomes tinged with hopeful brightness… Poof! The dim underbelly disappears!

It’s Only Words #5

A Purpose

We carelessly squander

and aimlessly ponder

the significance of life

as it passes us by.

With scant concentration

and meek motivation,

we search for fulfillment

but find nothing there.

What good are our choices,

our vision, our voices,

if we don’t use them;

but lock them away?

A purpose! That’s the key

to joy and sanity

or darkness swoops in

and the sun doesn’t shine!

That’s why I write…I’m a little afraid of the dark!
