i’d like to follow the rainbow
and play with the colors that arch
from the sea extending to the mountains
losing luster as i await and watch

how happy i am when it shows
it cools me at noon ’till it’s gone
at times the colors brighten like a rose
then lightens and fades like the setting sun

in the lives of men if compared
born and die in God’s perfect will
their time to be saints and sinners if dared
laughter, cheers, or bad luck can be downhill

rainbow, if the sky is your place
teach me how to hang high up there
bravely awaits the time to leave no trace
to appear and bring joy to all somewhere

silent as the clouds above
frosty than the winter snow
saintly when they speak of love
words lovely as the rainbow

reserve when madness rings in
smile is the armor that appears
defeat the temper that comes in
sometimes it burns up all in tears

annoyances come differently
in others they don’t mind
felt deep acting like a bully
reactions vary, individually defined

when fight becomes your only response
it will undermine relationships
occasional outburst can be given a chance
be the captain, tighten your own grip

The day…

i never know the image of the sun at night
behind those clouds i know it is shining bright
all throughout my life it’s there since i was born
God explains why roses bloom among the thorns

rainbows appear when the sky showers against the sun
with the brightness of day, a beautiful bridge is done
but what fun could it give to those whose truths are blind
who can only hear the beauty hidden from behind

i hear the river growls and runs in heavy storms
downstream it goes bombarding rocks and stones
the land dampens as tears pour from heaven
’till the cold embraces me feeling your presence…

Listen to my thoughts and musings
as i print the words in your mind
See the brushes that i used
to paint your story unwind
The road that you used to tread
was the road that you left behind
You searched for some colors
you didn’t see the rainbow of a kind
It appeared in the night of your sleep
in the deep of your colorful flight

There was laughter in the air
and beyond the length were cries
There was abundance
next thing was drought as a prize
Parties were all around
where lonesomeness waited their turn
That’s how it was
life was lived
That’s how it will be and you should
live life to the fullest …
