Where Have All My Unicorns Gone? - Poem by Andrew Phillips

Is my faith so
Fake? , are my

Hopes not
Real? Are these

Dreams at
Night? , are these

Fears I
Feel? Will

Here lead
There? because I think
That is where my
Unicorns are...

Do the restless
Rest? , do

The beggars
Choose? When

The walls
Come down, do

The helpless
Lose? Will

Here lead
There? because I KNOW
That is where my
Unicorns go:

Outside the rubble,
Beyond the ash,
Above the stars,
Far past the trash,

Pastures exist
For souls to lie-
To join the herd,
Do I have to die? to

Be at rest? , to
Write a verse? , to
Rid the cancer? , to
Flee the curse? , and

Come towards
The light I
Fear, to live
The life I
Once revered? ...

If to follow my unicorns this is the cost,
I'll no longer exist amongst the lost.
