Freedom - Poem by Mai Venn

So soon comes the night
Covering the earth from the light
Conscious shadows forming everywhere,
Casting doubt, imposing fear.
Into our subconscious
Come uncontrollable dreams,
Now in torment,
Unmerciful screams,
Confined within this prison of the night,
The dark is at war with the light.
Freedom is a dream dressed all in white
Comes with the dawn, flees with the night.
Angle like face, fading gradually in the mist,
Awakens the earth with the ease of a kiss.
