The world around,
bustle and noise.
People running,
never slowing.
You are taught,
smile and press on.
Day to weeks,
then turns to years.
One's darkness slowly creeps,
as the drapes drop down.
O it may be high noon,
but darkness feasts.
All around people hurry,
will but one stop and ask?
To pull the drapes up,
allowing the bright back in.
So the battle continues,
today darkness is vanquished.
But today is not tomorrow.
People running never slowing.
Darkness creeps.
