A Civil Stand

You want your voice to be heard?
Don't be another sheep in the herd
You want to make a difference?
Look in the mirror and find what's missing
You want to protest?
That's fine
Just leave out the crime 
There's already enough violence and rage
Don't be the next to end up in a cage
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness" 
As Martin Luther King Jr. once said
So let's take a civil stand instead
Let us be divided no more
Let us not begin the next civil war
Let us stand hand in hand
Side by side
This is true American Pride

Painted colors atop
Streaks of pink and blue
I can't help but stop
And gaze at such a wonder
It's amazing how I'm merely a speck
On this painting that I stand under 
Pink and blue
Watching them turn a different hue
How they blend so seamlessly
I'm awestruck as I stare dreamily
Seems so surreal 
It's hard to fathom such a sight is real
This painting has majestic splendor 
It's all thanks to our Creator

This Water

Rushing Water
Ever changing
Ever flowing
This rushing water
Where is it going?
Does it flow and then ebb?
Or does it continue instead?
Rushing but soothing
So peaceful and moving
Powerful and cleansing
So crisp and refreshing
This rushing water is cool and clear
It will always draw me near
