Emergence | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

Yellow and green
in place of black

A heart
in place of coal

Friendship
in place of treachery

Water
in place of wine

Oxygen
in place of smoke

Health and happiness
in place of sickness

Life and love
in place of cancer

Truth and honesty
in place of false hope

A song
in place of silence

Order
in place of chaos

Today
in place of the past
