“Nothing can hold back the night”

Posted in Uncategorized

In the beginning
There was the cold and the night
Prophets and angels gave us the fire and the light
Man was triumphant
Armed with the faith and the will
That even the darkest ages couldn’t kill

Too many kingdoms
Too many flags on the field
So many battles, so many wounds to be healed
Time is relentless
Only true love perseveres

It’s been a long time and now I’m with you
After two thousand years

This is our moment
Here at the crossroads of time
We hope our children carry our dreams down the line
They are the vintage
What kind of life will they live?
Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?

Sometimes I wonder
Why are we so blind to fate?
Without compassion, there can be no end to hate
No end to sorrow
Caused by the same endless fears

Why can’t we learn from all we’ve been through
After two thousand years?

There will be miracles
After the last war is won
Science and poetry ruling the new world to come

Prophets and angels
Gave us the power to see
What an amazing future there will be

And in the evening
After the fire and the light
One thing is certain: Nothing can hold back the night

Time is relentless
And as the past disappears
We’re on the verge of all things new

We are two thousand years

We might not get through this. Many lives will be lost. Many people will be irrevocably scarred. If you have true love in your heart, I have true love for you. I mourn with you. Even if we’re not okay. Even if the country falls apart. You matter to me.

Stay safe. Take care of yourselves. Find solace where you can, even if only for a moment. For me, that’s believing that there will be miracles after the last war is won. I love you.
