My Stranger

introduced

unrecognizable

~

denying

emotion, impulse

concealed from view

~

you’re a fool

blindly searching the sun

~

under the surface

darkness

uncontrollable, unexplainable

natures

~

look into the fire

understand instinct

I’m part of you

~

look into the sun

blindly no more

~

raise your cup

to light, to truth

~

My Stranger

The Great Depression

born in uncertainty

~

a phenomenon

giving rise to fascism

destruction

a second world war

~

the despair felt

by many

never left

throughout their life

~

those years

left a mark

taking generations

to live down

~

I’m listening dad

I’m starting to understand
