As the light changes

I love walking down the stairs
As evening descends
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

The lamps now illuminate
What before reflected sun
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

I think of what is beyond
The room I enter into
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

Outside the walls with hanging pictures
That now look different
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

The world is so uncertain
And mankind so mystifying
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

The raping and destruction
Of innocents and land goes on
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

Poisoning of spirit and waters
Permeates at all depths
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

But one knows resilient earth
Still smiles from under towers
As the light adjusts
From Natural to manmade

And what, indeed is natural?
One ponders an agenda
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

The conquer seems intended
Or perhaps just simply fated
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

We float above the ground
Removed in our own skin
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade

For although the surface changes
So does what's underneath
As the light adjusts
From natural to manmade
