Conquering The Stars


We live in this world with so many lights
Brightening and removing the nights
So many things catching our eyes
That we give up and give into the lies
Our attention is drawn to every bright beam
We can't tell what's real and what's a dream
In our confusion and in our defeat
We'll find the light that we truly should meet
He shines brightest of all and His ways are true
He wants to take care of me and of you
But there's no many lights that get in the way
We don't know what to think or what to say
He wants to change our lives and our hearts
He wants to save us before a war starts
This brightest light wants what is best
And we'll go with Him if we wish to find rest
But to do so means battling the lights
It won't be easy winning these fights
But we can do it, break their glittering bars
We'll fight and we'll conquer the stars

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
