Hope.


The morning sky hides behind the night; a never ending wait

For the knight in golden armour, hoping to be saved again;

The flowers live on, oblivious to their unpredictable fate.

The lands, so barren, await the long lost rain.

Birds search for grain, predators yearn for prey;

Answers abandon questions,

The hopeless kneel and pray.
