Xiao Dre, when life knocks you down, you can choose, whether or not, to get back up
-Jackie Chan as Mr. Han

As every child knows, and as everyone has said,
The Sun will descend at the end of its plight,
And paint the sky with bright hues of red.
Just a ball remaining of a once mighty light,
Shocking onlookers in its stunning glory,
Some stop to glimpse for a minute’s rest,
Till it sinks gently beyond the horizon and the sea.
Until the bloodstained clouds bear last witness
To the end of the Sun’s Odyssey.
And so it falls; the sky steadily goes black,
And we must continue thru the next day
Until the Sunset comes back.

The author's comments:
I watched the Sunset for the fist time in years. Funny how a beauty like that happens every day, but few realize this. Few stop to watch and wonder. Today, I am one of those few. And all I can say is 'I'm Captivated.' Thank you, God, for sunsets and the rest of the small beauties in life.
