The gentle rays of dawn

light up the world

nudging and moving

the wheel of life.


The darkness behind the rock

wistfully imagines transparency

wanting to partake in the feast

on the other side of existence.


Light — so near, and yet so far

opacity blocks vision and thought

Heavy — the hand of Ignorance

It keeps people basking in the rot.


Military power belongs to the past

Dictatorship now, just needs a haze.

Knowledge and prosperity idly wait

unable to attract the human gaze.


All it takes is a twist of thought

An epiphany, a realization

The rocks go tumbling in a flash

when insight meets imagination.
