Night of Time

Children crying
never ending
screaming out their misery
but no one there
to comfort or support
nor even to explain the constancy
of all the pain they feel

for we believe in time
and therefore can't conceive
of any life without this pain
that leads to only death
while these children must cry out
for future life

and now the stars divine
begin to shine through darkest night
and time begins to just dissolve itself
into the splendor of a dawning light
right here, right now
within the seeming darkness
that becomes no more than just
this night of time . . .
