CAN I SEE? Can I see the joyful rainbow from here? A leaden veil of thick cloud dims My earnest vision, So I cannot rise in confidence From my earth-bound state of grief, Garnered from days of lean harvests By a scorching desert. Alone, I suffer From detached isolation, without The restful comfort of a gentle companion. The sun's harsh blaze empties me Of all resolve to fight for freedom, I, becoming its unwilling prisoner In a world where survival counts for nothing. I cast my gaze over the endless expanse, Seeing a display of dry bones To confirm the despair within, I will not live without knowing The purpose that can change My circumstances. Perhaps a rainstorm of tears Has come to wash away the pain That lies around in every part of me. Perhaps there may be The kaleidoscopic rainbow for Bringing a sign of hope to me. I dare to wait for better times.
