A Midnight Man of hopes


My home blames me
Not an answer for me
I am an owl
Like the life foul
Shouts my soul
I eat my nail

Silence gives me eyes
Mind gives me words
Time hides my dreams
Night arrests my sleeps


I must find a land
To plant the seeds
What I wrote
One day it may reap
Not for me in hope
But for who will need

My home blames me
No words no seeds
No reply it needs

Midnight slowly passed
Must go the bed
Day too gives a hope
Let me not to sleep
