Divided in the darkness of faith
Mother runs ahead of emotional time
Her dearest she lost
Thunder of cry rains
And storm of grief blankets
Every one’s mind
God created us with purpose
At a distance in isolation
He might be repenting
To humans animals are far better
The blacken paints, anguish faces
Express the voice in silence
The Moon and the Mars awaiting next
Lament the conflicting human race
Rhetoric words from
The lexicon of revulsion
Busy sinking in distinguishing
Red blood from the red.
Still in the thickness of tragedy
Pigeons carry the message of love
Near the eclipsed palace we wait
For the new Sun to rise.
