Does The Sun Know

14

*DOES THE SUN KNOW* Does the sun know, that men staked their pleasure and happiness, So the odd will be in their favour. With hopes that they would have moulded dreams into reality Before she makes another of her 365 times journey from East to West. Does the sun know , that from the day men walked out of the door between their mothers leg. He has taken record of many times she has switched duty with the moon . And has grouped it into days , weeks and years. And a day comes that we may be mocked if our dreams remains only dreams. Does the sun know, that men carry the weight of the next generation. Each day , we dive into her fury and anger And her lashes is visible on our black rough skin, Just because men want to bring home patch of the earth To calm the protesting worms in their children stomach. If only the sun knew, maybe she would had tarried a bit longer Till we have filled the barn of our pocket And would have reduced the many strokes of rays hitting our body each day. For our skins now tells tales of our agony #Joe poetry
