When all the lights go out

The Question of MeaningPoetry

When all the lights go out

Fire will rise again

Warmth emits from small flames burning

Entertainment is created from brains

And transportation requires movement

Food comes from nature and cans

We rely on labor to provide

Awareness is reborn in people

As we wait for the sun to rise and set

Only the cognizant and responsible

Will live with little panic

Natural resources bring water

Tempers rise and fall within people and the Earth

But we will live

We will walk out of the ashes stronger

We will make it work

Even through troubles and dilemmas

Through deaths and sicknesses

We will continue on
