This hour drags by, Moment by moment. So many more to pass, To overcome Through Blackness, Bleak, dark, absence of Light And Hope Before morning will break, And the sea will begin once more To crash upon the shore... Passing the clusters of lonely people We can't trust. It's a fault of human nature, How did we get this way? That we won't help The vunerable, lost, alone, Far from home, We fear The unknown, nameless faces, faceless Strangers. Huddled, they try to make sense of it - Their situation. They may never be saved, They lose themselves, Their reality, Comfort In alcohol - An escape from this cold, harsh reality And the hours pass more quickly Through the cold. Until the morning - Daylight breaking through the clouds, Bringing with it relief. The streets, still deserted, The empty sand. And here i stand And just watch the beauty, The endless cycle, Though its not the same, Such incredible strength Lies within As it crashes, Only to lose momentum At the last moment, and just break upon the sand, Catching the early sunlight, Like broken glass, glittering upon the shore At my feet. I sit And I'm content.
