Abstractions
Sorrow's night
fills us with bitter tears
and leaves us with spirits of stone.
It hides among the shadows as the nameless fear
and reminds us we are most definitely alone.

We lack the courage to face the fight,
but as darkness ends in bloody dawn,
our weary eyes strain for the faintest light,
and somehow we find the strength to press on.
