Although We Do Live In A Dark Planet (Cavatina) (In Answer To Karl Shapiro) - Poem by Gert Strydom

Although we do live in a dark planet,
a place of sin
while time moves forward constantly
demons cannot win,
God holds the hope and love of tomorrow.
We do go in
the next moment, rather with happiness,
than with all of our sorrow and sadness.
