From the Pocket of a Dream


 “…Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born,
Every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight.

Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night…”

from Auguries of Innocence by William Blake

A mission
An existence in vain
The bottom never deep enough
Always more of it
An enormous gap swallows in greed

Eyes in wait
No light from the opening above
One hole
One promise of the eternal silence

Why now
We thought we reached the doorway
The entrance
A saviour
A leader out of the dark

Why now
Only one step away
All the chains seemed to be down
The freedom seemed to smile
offering the food for this hunger
A crumb of hope

But the night is said to be endless
We are given no time
