Times today are filled with hate,
and life is wearing thin.
Most inhabitants have lost
the spark of joy within

But this is not the truth for all...

Structures of hope are crushed with war,
and violence reigns throughout.
Trees of love and life are lost,
shriveled with ominous drought.

Yet some are still standing tall.

The author's comments:
A short poem reflecting on resilient people. I wrote this poem to congratulate those who can still see the joy in life even with all of the war and destruction in the world.
