May 7-9, 2021


darkness is a thing any may endure

its gloom indiscriminately scattered

inattentive of time or tide or border

after all, it is ours to die so why not

allow grey discolour before its time

the vibrance of our impermanence

resigned, endure an endless night

laid early upon our transient day

it would be easy to yield to dark

let drear gloom displace our joy


and yet


we are brave enough to live
