The Place - Poem by The Light and the darkness

The place of green dreams
Under darkened trees
Shades upon green grass thick
Foretells the pleasure bliss may be

A place that flows forth
The contentment soft
And thrusts like violence
Dissatisfaction dark

The darkness under the thick trees brush
Shadows cast on dry rotten leaves
I sit and ponder its beauty much
As my hopes, my dreams
Bring birth pangs such

Green and black the colours blotch
As an end in either possible be

I ask my Father to feather my mind
To focus thoughts back on the right kind

As natural beauty of green black and brush
So such my life an ebbing gush
