Unknown World Reveal Thyself To Me - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Sun should shine, life prevail,
forces dark from the pits of Hell.
Hope and love die from shame,
evil whence doeth take thy name.
Bay at the moon, water and force,
closing of vein will stead fast its course.
Birds in flight, through out the night, .
call in time of days new light.
Bugs do flutter just out of reach,
as tests for man whose souls do preach.
Trees stand mighty against life's winds,
but alas no mortal man can bear his own sins.
Tears may fall, winds carry away words,
as cries can be heard from passing birds.
Moon that doeth shine we call unto thee,
unknown world reveal thyself to me,
restore our land, and make it free.
