The world outside the window

The world outside the window

By May Kwek

In the room the world is dull
The walls and floor are plain
The lights are dimmed, the sound’s a constant hum
It always feels like it’s about to rain

Day in day out
Constant and unchanging
The sun rises and the sun sets
And you never hear a bird singing

Yet out of the corner of your eye
You can see the world outside
The bright sun on the green leaves
The brightening and waning of the day’s light

You see the leaves toss as they are blown
By a gale from the sea
You see butterflies and birds
Playing hide and seek amongst the trees

Storms arise and then subside
Behind that tinted glass
You see flowers bloom and then fade
And you find that you can trust

That though inside the world seems
To never ever change
But just outside the window
That world never stays the same
