“When the Sun Sets” By Dhruv Raghavan

When the sun begins to set

We all go home and place a bet

How long will the sun last today?

Will he ever care to stay?

The sun shows his bright colors

But darkness comes and smothers

He fights back

But darkness gives him a whack

His blood is like a colorful quilt in the sky

We watch and say goodbye

The sun sinks down to the ground

Darkness goes and keeps him bound

Each night, they have a fight

Each day, the sun shows his light

But when he’s forced away

Darkness then comes to stay

We may always want light

But we can’t always win a fight.
