Don’t let that glaze of sorrow blind you,
there’s beauty to behold in the darkest of shadows
if only you know where to shine the light.
It’s easy to sit by your homely frontier
and peer out at carnage from a shield of glass,
their wickedness – clear as windows themselves;
condemned to be an introvert.
But no, it’s true courage that sees you peel back the barricade
and step upon an uneven path,
hidden from view by a menacing fog
in a quest to prove yourself wrong.
It’s there, but are you brave enough to look?
