IN THE DARK


In the dark of night
peace is found
all is quiet from
hustle and bustle
 life slows gently
the days clamour fades
into the darkness of night

In the dark of night
a new form of life emerges
from cardboard houses
stranded automobiles
makeshift tents in the park
newspaper covered bodies

In the dark of night
peace no longer reigns
struggle for sustenance of life
War of the classes begins
In the dark of night…homeless

In dark of night 
babies cry
stories told
voices raised
fists swung
hugs given

In the dark of night
shuffling feet
covert glances
brown bags raised
round barrel fire
In the dark of night

 

 

About lenwilliamscarver

A simple woman of simple means, walking a gravel road on my journey, made stronger by paths taken barefoot, pain endured, and revealed in these writings. Mistakes made some taught a lesson some lessons ignored, now learning to forgive myself.
