When darkness falls

When darkness falls

If only it were so simple,
to cruise through life smelling roses,
but obstacles blacken our thoughts 
and dreams sustain us through the madness. 
Goals give a finish line to our race,
yet they change with every turn
and remain elusive throughout the quest
as we stumble blind when darkness falls.



Regrets we wear to slow us down,
a luggage best left behind,
Love can be bitter or love can be sweet,
it feeds us up or starves us bear,
people shape our crumbling strength,
yet they can also leave us cold 
our victories are flashes of sudden light 
but fade away when darkness falls
