The Light Must Gather

by Zachary A. Horn

When darkness
comes
the light
must gather.

This
is my
mantra.

As a
darkness
familiar
to every
age

Bestrides
the world
and claims
victory over
the land
of the
free.

Home
of the
brave.

Driven
mad
by fear.

When darkness
comes
the light
must gather.

This
is my
prayer.

As a
familiar
darkness
wearing
new faces.

Conquers
the world
and claims
victory
one final
time.

Home
of the
shinning
city upon
the hill.

Set
aflame
by hate.

When darkness
comes
the light
must gather.
