“Sometimes”

sometimes the sun shines, oh, so bright, and sometimes the air is sweet and clear
sometimes my world glistens and glows, and sometimes the future feels so near
then one day the sun doesn’t shine; one day the air is closed and too hot
then one day my world's dull and dim; one day the future that was, is not
I cannot cry for lost sunshine, and I cannot long for cool, sweet air
I cannot see the world I know, and I cannot touch the future bare
so I dream of gold lights of warmth; I dream of breezes in the dark night
so I dream of my life's freedom; I dream of magic futures of light

I wrote this poem when I was still in high school. It's one of my favorites because it reflects the optimism in which I've tried to view life..
