The darkness spreads.
All hope is lost in the eyes of men,
The streets are full of despair and reckless abandon.
Our worst fears have been realized,
Now we know we are not unique,
Just snowflakes melting in the heat of the passion that comes from mourning the end of an era.
Silenced will the enslaved and destitute be no more.
Civil unrest looms.
Close your eyes and dream of the light,
As the night eternal envelops us all,
Hope and faith shall guide you.
Together we shall overcome.
