it seems

that the darkness is getting darker

there are hungry
there are ignorant
there are homeless
there are angry
there are delusional
there are insane
there are violent

but i look
to my left
and my right

and i see hunger for knowledge,
open doors and welcoming arms,
i hear passionate dreams
and beautiful fantasies

i hear the seeds
of everything we need
to lift the darkness

i see you
pulling in the sun.
