Sometimes life is like a sunset hidden behind the clouds,
I know its beautiful 
back there
if only I could see it better.

Sometimes I look at life
with sadness
because I can't see the sunset 
as I think it should be

Sure, its beautiful
peaking out from behind the clouds
but still
I long for the beauty I can't see

Sometimes I look at life
with gladness
because the sky is painted bright
with clouds and sun

Sure, there's clouds
covering up colors not so vibrantly seen
but still
I drink in the imperfect beauty

Sometimes I can't see through the clouds
Sometimes I can't see from the sun

but somewhere
there always is 

a beautiful sunset

these sky pictures are taken on the same day just 20 minutes apart on opposite sides of the city
