Cheng Li Yang

The Sun chased the Moon

The wild flowers bloom, the first snow melts,
The rain stops, the rainbow fades.
While the Sun chased the Moon...

The first fish swam, the first bird flew,
The first mammal ran, the first Man stand.
While the Sun chased the Moon...

Buildings scraped the sky, wheels rule the streets,
Man became oblivious to everything except what they need.
Still the Sun chased the Moon...

The Earth chokes, the Air appalls,
The Water tainted, the Sky weeps.
Still the Sun chased the Moon...

Love found, love lost,
In a vicious cycle of tears and joy.
Still the Sun chased the Moon...

Hopes and dreams piled up high,
With one kick all comes tumbling-by.
Still the Sun chased the Moon...

Civilizations fall, Men slaughtered,
Wars rage on as if they'd never stop
Still the Sun chased the Moon...

A millenia the chase lasted,
Another millenia it'll go on.

Darkness falls, the Moon comes out
Rest assured the Sun is not far behind.

The Day may seem at its worst,
The Night may seem it could never get better.

Fear not, weep not.
As long as the Sun chases the Moon, there is hope.

A Hope for a new Day,
Hope for a new beginning.

The winds of loneliness howls in your chest
The turbulence of the storm rages on...

Alas, this is how we're meant to be,
The pain will never quite go away.

There will always be Hope,
Just beyond the hills, just beyond the valleys,
As long as...
The Sun chases the Moon.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
