What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


All things must change
in the fullness of time,
and the dawn shall come,
albeit in shadowed tones in its coming.

Seeping into man’s being
and stealing the darkness,
it shall wrest his heart from the grip of death.

Lifting the mind above all things
set in this baleful world,
in its beauty, to be unfurled.

The dawn shall come,
albeit in shadowed tones.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I am adding this note as an after-thought as this write is being interpreted incorrectly (my fault - I should have added a note at the time of submission) . It Is not about old age, rather it is about the evolution of man's consciousness which, I believe, is ever expanding and will eventually reach cosmic levels.

    I really like this one. Very powerful, accurate, and all-encompassing in its scope. I especially like the repetition of shadowed tones. What a wonderful phrase!

    What a gorgeous poem, thank you for share! Yes indeed, I also feel that inside of us is sleeping a tremendous power. Would I live to see the day when our fully awaken mind will have the word?

    Seeping into man’s being
    and stealing the darkness

    Gives one pause to wonder; a tiger is a tiger now as it was 100,000 years ago.
    Man may be smarter but wiser?
