Why Fret?

A poem on hope

Today,
the sun will set
into a rose and lavender hue —
why fret?

Tomorrow,
the birds will sing
yet again, of hope and bliss —
why fret?

The trodden grasses
sprout again,
the yesteryear's
monsoon downpours
come around again —
why fret?

The rivulets will continue
caressing pebbles and stones,
the trees will stand tall,
sway to the breeze,
all rustle and shade
for jaded souls —
why fret?

The world is one big home
through war and love,
and the sky has no borders —
you and me belong to them.
The colors of the rainbow
survive the dust and moisture,
life is a poem of hope —
so why fret?

Someday,
the walls will dissolve,
the droughts will resolve,
misery will see its end,
and another beautiful day,
you and I will walk
the paths we left behind…

So... why fret?
