Darkest night falls, humanity's getting lost

I saw the shadows of the day fading ...
and the need for illumination rising,
There was a fear of darkness spreading,
as the darkest night ever threatened of falling...

I had seen uncountable sinners in those shadows...
sins so grave, deserved to be sent to the gallows,
their conscience is still missing,guilt never follows,
what good was it then sealing them up in burrows...

I had fought for the victims, got them relief in kind...
the wounds healed,only to leave painful memories behind,
Some questions remained unanswered in their mind,
had the sinners ever repented the misery they left behind ?

I walk the streets today as the darkest night falls on me..
witnessing the descent of man,fulfilling a wretched destiny,
I still wonder when the dawn will come,how it would be,
when man walks towards the light, revive his humanity..

"I had seen uncountable sinners in those shadows...
sins so grave, deserved to be sent to the gallows,"- reminded me of our politicians... ;) Well written!

Hope is a good thing, maybe not the best of things; But all good things never die.
