Madness of nation’s darkness

moments of light

few and far between

soul’s embitterment

taste intolerable

attempting to recall

memories of sweet

failure brings surrender

powerlessness cloaks eyes

exhale…inhale…

smell transition’s aroma

just as nature’s 

change of season

a promise to trust

good shall rise up and

shine like Autumn’s brilliance

laying to rest 

death’s shadows

upon humanity.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #60 – Every Wednesday I post a photo.  You respond with something CREATIVE.

Behind the steel bars

is a tunnel that leads to

a prison of lost dreams,

deferred hope, abandoned faith

endless wandering through

mazes that can only be felt

for in this there is no sight…

until weariness meets humility

and the soul’s patina becomes 

new again unlocking the bars

setting free what was once

drowning in the sewage of despair.

Life can begin again at any time,

any moment of the day, by choice.
