In Darkness


In Darkness

In darkness, eyes can’t see

that which hearts don’t feel.

Dawn’s rays again suspended.

Hope withers in cruel silence

beneath mountains of neglect.

Black waters freeze motionless,

strangling last gasps of promise.

Dying daily in increments, they

whose lives teeter wasted below

gum-stained souls, lost rubble

under the heels of the privileged.

Those uncaring consume all light,

sustaining the well not the weary.

A bright day to come when one

with vision shall appear, ushering

his blind flock into warmth’s glow.

Rocks will crumble, humanity flow.
