The spreading of wings,
to cover the night of day.
The overbearing clouds,
keeping the sunrise at bay.
All things great, and all things good,
are things by all means, probably should.
Lead to happiness, prosperity, and joy within me,
or a simple contentment, a peace that will be.
Yet no matter what strives,
no matter what comes to be.
The characteristic of things,
is that they all cease to be.
All good and bad.
Like the time of midnight,
vanishing in seconds.
Burning the fuels, and pushing the lies,
we strive ceaselessly, towards countless lies.
Of messages of a future we think we understand,
A glimmer of hope which we barely comprehend.
Needlessly striving, continually pursuing,
we arrive at the destination,
Our wayward soul,
all the burns that follow,
and we look upon, to truly behold.
What we see are the joys,
a series of countless,
wastes and toiletries.
When we realize the path that we sowed has been done,
and all that we wish for, coming undone.
We begin to regret,
not knowing back then,
that a path which burns,
will lead to ashes in the end.
Yet it is not too late,
for there's always a chance,
that the truth will shine,
bright as the sun.
It is the moonlit night,
the salient breeze.
Which cools our hearts,
and soothes the feels.
When we release the burdens which have cindered us for so long,
what is left, is to go where we belong.
Peaceful and free, cool and placid,
it is then we can say, "Cooling down is worth it."
To cool down from the vicissitudes of life is not easy... but it is worth it.
To all those who read this poem, may you all experience relief from the stresses of life.
