darkness

the days are dark

it's strangling my mind

everywhere death seems

to grow, sprawl

like black lava

its path

pronouncements

of unbending

will


where's hope

has it run away

hiding

afraid


where's light

has it also

fled

overcome


the sky

can't find the sun

something is in the way


darkness

despair

death

three cousins

riding

trampling

the earth


what to do

we look at each other

for something

anything


look at the trees

the flowers

the babies crying

for their mother

the birds

keeping watch

over their little ones


light

hope

life

they're singing

for you and me

we forget to listen


this is life

like a stream

it flows

carrying life

death

in darkness and light


to time

to chance

to places

all

is

one


nothing new

mind you

we believe we can

with machines and makes

so different from the past

they're the same

to defy time

nature


we imagine and create

that is our gift

so gods we think we are

so darkness

despair

death

they remind us

Maker

we

aren't
