WASHED BY LIGHT

The world was encompassed by disease and gloom.
For happiness and joy there was little room.
But the Sun rose and will rise every day in the east.
Will wash the world with light and darkness defeat.
The flowers  will bloom and bees hover around.
In our hearts love for our dear ones abound.

There are battles and wars to demonstrate power.
Killing humans and destroying normal life by bullet shower.
But there is still compassion and love.
There is still peace and the white dove.
The Sun floods the world with light.
There are still many who are doing things right.

There are crimes and wicked deeds.
At times, a dishonest person leads.
But the strength of the right over wrong is such,
That light covers up darkness much.
All gloom will be painted by the beauteous sight.
The Sun will wash the world with its light.
