Elusive Deliverance

We fear what we do not know
What we do not understand
What we do not comprehend.


Who knows why darkness
Claims the light?
Who understands why
Friends are taken?
Who comprehends
The cruelty of fate?

All that is certain
Is that darkness feeds.

On fear.
On desolation.
On despair.
On hurt.
On anger.
On pain.

How do we
Cast aside the darkness?

If we fortify the fortress
If we poison the moat
If we let no one else in

Will we salvage
The remaining light?

Or be left
Alone in the tower
Adrift at sea
Lost in the night?
