Things aren’t right,
Without enough light,
The plants won’t grow,
But, what about Human,
Do we need to let the light in?
When I’m there standing,
Among the planting,
I come to an understanding –
The light ray,
Has a way,
Of removing black and blues,
Like a dose of good news,
The light makes me shine,
… makes me feel real fine.
When the days grow darker,
I have withdrawal from the sun,
It gets harder and harder,
To find the fun,
So, I stand in the green,
Toward the light,
Helping my spirit feel alright!
