A Fading Light

It started with young eyes

Trying to make sense of the world they live in,

Images and sounds we had never heard before,

Spun by elders to make,

Some sense,

Of a nonsensical narrative.

Starting with a bang

And ending with a bang

Now that love has been sacrificed for hate.

After decades

An unbelievable tragedy

Is unfolding before my aging eyes

All neatly tied up

In a devastating virus

No-one is able to stop.

It began with a letting go of your God

Or Higher Power,

And expecting us to do it

On our own.

Now the thug and the lie have taken a superior stance

And we are too weak to fight

What we know

Is a losing battle.

The world is burning

Violence is a new kind of love

Hard to resist

That sense of satisfaction

That discipline lacks.

So it’s self gratification

Before delayed

But it’s meaningless in the shadow

Of a fading light.
