Poem: Hope in Darkness

Someone’s made victims of us all

Played us for fools, so we’re left in their thrall

The beautiful world is stripped and bare

a mere shadow of what once was there.

But unlike some I do have hope

a guide in darkness through which I grope

There is another world we cannot quite see

where justice and love reign, forever free
