The Light That Pierces The Gloom [Winter 2014]

Ferguson-protests

A night infected with anger
Rising, blazing, then
Swirling, subsiding
Calm once more
Clarity
Let us not call this
A return to peace
Do not forget: indignation
Do not forget: dignity
Do not forget: the shadows of the past
Or that which still casts this dark
Be the light that pierces the gloom
The torch that feeds the conflagration
Fanning the flames
Til the ashes of the old order
Feed the soil of the future
