Beyond My Nights
The smallness of the sparrow flitting...
upon the fence where it is sitting –
is as me upon the fence I sit.
And, so I flinch to see such sights,
those visions of my days and nights...
and I am torn upon this since I’ve lit.
To my right there lies the sun
and to the day will I succumb
or shall I spread my wings in darkened flight?
To my left there lies the moon
adorned in her melodious tune...
while I am torn between what’s wrong and right.
And yet I see, if I have flown
upon the dark winds having blown
across the land to light on distant shores...
the sun will find me resting there;
the wind shall hear my every prayer
and I will find my days beyond my nights!
