In the noisy night of thunder,
Creatures cower in the dark,
Fearing each flash of lightning.
Stories linger, of the anger and wrath
Of gods and monsters, run wild.
I realize how far we’ve come.
Booming fear of the unknown
Still fading into the distance.
Quietly, I continue thinking,
how far we need to go, with science,
With life, with nature, with man.
Then I think of the light,
The peaceful, quiet shine
Of new days coming,
Knowing storms always pass.
And I smile into the day.
