Shadows Lurk


Shadows may lurk in silence still
light shines from within, through
sorrow and stride, light's glow
continues bright, strength of
mother roams in her wilderness
of dreams and promises, she
comforts spirit, she lays her hand
over forests of burnt trees and
shed's her tears with the breeze.

'Where has my beauty gone'
she sadly speaks, floating along
area's of mass destruction. 'No
more shall beauty cometh down
in glories rays' she speaks again
weeping soft rain upon her
destroyed planet earth.

Once their was plenty, now
fire blooms like flowers without
fresh morning dew, touched, with
shallow eyes, watching darkened
hearts grow cold with fear, to see
what they have done. They have
lite the match of destruction, and
turned away from a could of been

Sun fading fast, clouds cry
like tears of dusty suet, no more
shall light shine it's beauty upon
planet earth like once when air was
fresh-- now life may begin a new in
a different place and time.
