Pay attention to surroundings
the world in concrete dustings
we wear the right shoes
they’ll comfort the blues
make a long day seem rather
sweet in an odd sort of flavor
of calling the shots in a mid-day
conference where decides the way.
Welcome the summer air fresh
from last night’s rain, a thresh
makes her presence known at dawn
well listen wondering where on the lawn
will she find her dewy worm,
will we watch a bit of nature squirm.
watch the sunlight begin another hour
when while history occurs in our tower.
If in just a quiet moment this anxiety
we seem to hide to suggest our sanity
would step away for only a partial
afternoon, we could relax against a wall
rest assured our lives are all the same
it just seems more apparent we play the game.
Watch the sunrise one more time with me
for the wandering mind cannot deny the
simple beauty in the elegance of our way
this human condition, defines forever our day.
