Darkness Astray - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson
When the world seems scary, dreary, and sad,
look inside yourself, and the dreams you have.
Look past the pain, look past the sorrow,
reach for a better world for tomorrow.
Seek out the peace, seek out the joy,
look for the good in every girl, and boy.
For each death there is a new birth,
for each tear that’s shed, comes forth a new earth.
Bad things only hurt us if we remain the same,
so let us together change everything..
I see a new baby, a bird, and a pup,
in my world of dreams one never gives up.
Strength is a treasure, rare, but great,
kept deep inside us lying in wait.
Shout from the roof, shout from the doors,
raise up your voice, and the world is yours.
Little children come hither and heed what I say,
for a better tomorrow, do what’s right for today.
So come little children, run to the light,
God will protect you in his safety both day, and night.
