The Night Divide

In the night sky

there is a great divide

growing larger each moment

no where to hide

Filled with evil

murder and greed

some automatically drawn

feeling a great need

Light failing to contain it

feeding on power

when will it end

no one knows the hour

Poverty and disease

failure to help our fellow man

screams of pain

souls wiped up with a bedpan

Fire and pride

there is much smoke

some try to fight it

others begin to choke

The divide comes

in for the win

when an act of kindness comes

causing it to thin

Small acts of love

increases the light

the divide closes

defeated this night
