Darkness Hates Our Light

Like oil it pours,
Through the streets,
Of our souls,
The darkness
Seeks to drown the light.
In its wake,
Runs the rage,
The anger,
The hate,
The fear.
Like the dark,
They drown our souls,
In the darkness,
Of bestial thoughts.
We float,
In that sea,
Of rage and hate,
Awash with the
tidal ebb,
Of violence and
Petty aggression.
Unless we find,
An oasis of light,
That ocean of
hate,
Will wash us away.
