The Midnight Darkness

Today I’m sharing another poem I wrote as an example for my students.  This one is a quatern.  Today I’m sharing with Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie for their “Promises in the Dark” prompt.  It mostly, kinda fits.


Walking in the midnight darkness
searching blindly for my old soul,
connecting to earth and family–
how I got to be who I am.

Questioning society’s ways,
walking in the midnight darkness
trying to figure the reason
why the world is crazy today.

Hate and greed fueled by greater fear,
man attacks human and nature.
walking in the midnight darkness,
traveling a destructive path.

How can I make a change within,
appeal to greater love and hope,
asking society to quit
walking in the midnight darkness.
