Deep ahead a darkness 

cloak of sky by compass lure

what was promised men a light

blind steps will now endure

all things which make one fear

contempt for good in shadows


will you move through the darkness oh man

will you walk through its furor?


Persecuting screams

in haunting woods that hide

what suffrage will overtake thee

in acts of passing by

the mockery of faith in shrills

the hopelessness in claws


Will you move through the darkness oh man

will you walk through its furor?


What madness to take paths

destitute by vision

where hunger grows and thirst may vow

poisoned water as provision


When you come, oh light, to this despair

of failing darkness end

will you cast me frail and conquered

by these weakness within?


Oh man how frail and weak the light 

is sometimes necessity

for who cries out for guidance

when they have no need to see?

And who can tell me darkness

is not the ink I write

to make faith what preserves a man

regardless of his might.
