Hour Of Earth - Poem by dolan murphy

in the hour of earth
please take away the winter in my eyes
the partnership of the sun and earth
please fall on my blood and my body
please let the autumn winds sing as they've always sung
please god let me stand whole, not as a proud man apart
ive roamed the still night
gripping the black coal of my tired soul begging for the truth
for the freedom from the razor sharp dictators hanging from my finger tips
ive lived fully in half the man bleeding from my last bleak breath
please deaden my despair
ive tiptoed with reluctance between disaster and living
charcoal shadow of guilt and shame
the wholeness of the moon torments me
beyond the stars and the rain that fall like tears
i welcome the truth and an awakening to end my somber sleep
help navigate my numb voice and guide my clumsy feet
