The Colors of Simplicity

Power will come and will go—

wielded by this person or that;

 

But the colors of the trees interest me more,

as does the quality of your heart—

 

the love that you give,

the hopes that we share—

 

the forgiveness that can melt away all the pain.

 

What man wields power correctly?

Have we ever seen one?

 

Humility is man’s great weapon,

the one fashioned best for us—

 

the one least used, but most natural,

and most beautiful—

 

bringing false pride and foolish power,

to their knees.

 

Simplicity alights the world of men,

with colors bright—

 

shining radiant amidst the dull drabness,

of those seeking fame or fortune.
