The Umbrella Effect
There's a light that belies the notion
that vapor in the wind we are.
Though life holds no magic potion
we can swing on the nearest star.
If I gaze at the skies for awhile
I might be amazed at what I'll find.
Faces of every color and style;
most of them are quaint and kind.
In this sea of people I realize
they deeply bless the beast inside.
With calm I walk into their eyes
and wrest the ever flowing tide.
All these folks that make up the world
are like umbrellas you can't pull apart.
Each one's flag should be unfurled;
every one has the Tin Man's heart
Protect each other with umbrella power.
Treat each soul like a blooming flower.
