The trivia of gossip
Fades in the moonlit night
Thoughts born of apathy
Too dark to see the light
Two young boys dashing by
Run hard to see the fight
A woman does cry her son may die
Unless his wound heals right
A billion tears for a million years
So continues the human plight

On reflection from depressing days
When for humanity felt contrite
Away from the earth I shift my gaze
Amazed by the vast starlight
That reaches to dance upon the sea
With a message plainly is sight:
Be not concerned with earthly cares
Except those that bring delight
Transcend the sadness of mankind
And let your soul take flight
