Still Life

(Photo origin unknown)

The year we held our fist
“Are you angry yet?”
The year we let go
The year we lost some sleep
As all the lines centered
And we felt like sheep

Maybe all the words we say
We’ve already whispered in our sleep
And all the thoughts
We keep
Were written under peace
But there is water untouched by ice
darker than dark
there beneath the surface
The countless shadows
We may keep
we will continue
Like morning
Burning bright and frail against the night
Looking to the sky
Because that’s human
That’s flesh and blood
That’s eternity in our grasp
