Grey Skies

Grey skies are welcomed just as well as blue

Turmoil and strife shunned the sun

So she won’t be making an appearance today

Not because she cannot or is too weak to endure

Slanderous slings

antagonistic arrows

or entitled expectations

But because she need not

Even when she takes center stage

There are some , not all but more so that usual as of late

That persist to engage in sorrowful shenanigans

Deceit, division, despair, and even damnation

Oh don’t they get it?

Can’t they see?

She shines brighter hoping to turn their eyes away from the darkness

But Pride and Envy seem to lure them back in

For some it is Lust and Greed

And don’t let Sloth fool by his slowness

His calamity is more insidious

but his effects are equally poisonous

That silly Sun , she still shines

She is trying to keep Wrath at bay

But today… she just wearied from it all

And took a break

Perhaps she will be missed

Maybe that will wake them up

From sedating complacency and self absorption

Maybe just maybe

For some

But perhaps not for others

Either way…

She will be back tomorrow no doubt

Even though the others keep creeping in

She can’t help but shine

Because it was what she was made for
