Eyes Glowing!


eyes glowing in the dark,
human fireflies,
forgotten faces,
hands grown numb.
tiny lights in a sea of blackness,
each one has a name!

breath stale as hunger,
looms over the altar.
all the sins of humanity
sold in multicolored booths.
an army of children marching
to the edge of understanding!

eyes glowing in the dark...

    like before the child was born numb hand and living in the dark, a world in womb
    but after the life we die and born without womb and we turn numb fears of sin stand below the tomb
    Eyes glowing ears hearing and body shaking, a waiting for a time..the time non stop run
    and answer will come...an impressive poetry by Sir Eric one more time! _Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
