Rise and Fall

When the leaves fall dead
And the seas drown the sky
And the sun goes down
When fire burns the soul
When the eyes turn red
And doubt lingers in the mind
When drought fills the earth
And trees dream of rain 
And beauty turns to haze
When you close your eyes 
Dream all night
Hold your fists high 
And ask why?!

How far can we run?
Fall and get back up
How high can we jump
Leaving gravity behind?
Hold your hands high 
And ask how?!

Dive into the blue sky
Touch Grace and light your soul
Take a walk on the shore
Keep your feet on the sand 
Say hi to the world 
Take a swim in the ocean
Praise this moment
