Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
-Walt Disney


The colors revealed, pitch black on pure white
Clouds flying over empty skies in the night
Dew under canopies in a tropical desert
Grass creeping through ice in a sudden growth spurt

You’d say it’s upside-down, but to me it’s my life
Divergence ignites a continual strife
As darkness arrives, as the moon sets
No child sleeps while the world around frets

Children lose their youth too soon
While wars of intolerance spread like typhoons
Facing horrors no one should face
Asking, “Where is God’s saving grace?”

Where is the innocence we once revered?
Now led by ignorance, held by fear
Caught in the standstill of what’s not yet forgiven
Not forgotten ‘til change, for what we have striven

Warning: I wrote this over a year ago. It's a little shaky, and changes topic randomly. I'm not greatly proud of it, but it's ok.

Well, uh, thanks... I guess. I mean, I like the phrasing, but as I said, it changes topic randomly. I guess it fit my ADD mind.
