The pillars of the world are crumbling,

Falling into the darker ocean as they left the darkness of earth

Light, white, blindingly beautiful light

The kind that is pure and unkind in its harsh illumination of reality

Darkness seeps in uninvited, obscuring the light,

Whose bright life brings truth to our eyes.

What have we done?!

The darkness creeps closer, the light is hidden.

We will search but we will not find.

Where is the light? Why did it go?

It went beyond our reach because we lost faith and lost ourselves to

the darkness.
