Not always as it seems
Perhaps bright, warm, and happy as day.
Or dark, cold and sad as night.
Life can be a crazy, changing flight.
Perhaps swift and quick,
Or slow and steady.
Decisions will be made, as long as you are ready.
What about the volume of a crowd,
Or the temperature of a room.
Settings differentiate from what you might assume.
Not everything is dismal though.
Not everything a delight.
But when you think back on it,
everything might fit together just right.
