light without darkness


Days are getting darker, universally

Human existence learns devastating heartbreak, compelled to accept, condemned to otherness

Crossing boundaries, bridges, walls, centuries; human occupation of lands marked by race, subject to violence

Actions embedded in daily routine; specific sadness, unabashedly showing anger

Herds more, individuals less; selectively eliminating questions from vocabulary

Because questions are a speaking voice

but humans seem to have fixed themselves; where they are relieved of questions

For who wants the burden of questions when the answers do not matter

Let me tell you, the story has just begun

There will be other era’s and however much today may seem timeless

Nothing has lasted; even the best civilizations have been plundered

And the loftiest kings have returned to a void; the humming sound of singleness that circles humans today; will be replaced soon

very soon, thinking will return

We will be soul bearing humans again; who stay up, awake, haunted by nightmares

not numbed

not herded

not silenced

not devices

Nights are a solace; almost
