The Turning World

As light shines through a glistening dew drop,
Showing the true beauty of white,
The world continues to turn.
As the birds of the forest chirp,
Singing of love and hope,
The world continues to turn.
As sound echoes through dark caverns,
Bouncing into nothingness,
The world continues to turn.
If all this beauty were to cease,
Would the world also cease to turn?

I love the last few lines of this poem. I like how you ended it with a question, really beautiful. Meghan
